I use maps to see where my volunteers are. It would be cool to see them on a map with the electoral boundaries on top. Is it possible to change the “base layer” map from google or wherever to a google map that I had put the ward boundaries on.....? 😀

It is not really possible within CiviCRM. However if you are on Drupal you could create a view and put that view on a map with your own layer.

  • I am using drupal so presumably since Civicrm contact location fields are available to drupal views then I will be able to create a page which is a drupal with map and location markers?

  • I know that it is possible but I do not know how to do it. You probably have to start looking into how to make a drupal view with/on a map. Sep 17, 2018 at 7:38

I think you should find the instructions at How to Map Contacts? helpful particularly the link to another Answer by Karin to this great answer How to put your CiviCRM Contacts on a Leafleft Map in 5min? which we have used and concur it gives us Maps with civi contacts
