Making it All Work: Initialization

Once you have your mapConfig all put together nicely, pass the configuration into the plugin and tell it what to do.

In this case #mapsplus is the ID of the target layer for the map as described in Step 1 with a “#” in front to let jQuery know to seach by ID for the element.


Advanced Initialization

Some people find it helpful to write some supporting functionality around the initialization of the map. Here are two examples you might find useful.

In the following case, #reset_map is the ID of a button that, when clicked, will reinitialize the map and reset the filters visual presentation.
