The Map module shows a map of upcoming events for the selected calendars in the configuration. Users are able to search events in a certain radius for a specific location. Regular content search is also provided and even searching within a specific timeframe.

In the module settings you can control which initial search criterias should be taken for the radius and length type. The current location button asks for permission to request the current location of the visitor and will then search events near her/him.

Beside the search criteria, there are a lot of options to control the behavior of the map. The options are described in the chapter below.
