Draw a map search

This feature requires the add-on “Draw a search“!

Allow your map users to search exactly where they want to by giving them the appropriate tool to draw on the map. You can also split your map into search areas and allow the map users to find locations by selecting one or more areas in a predefined select list. More demos can be found here!
