You will see the map displayed above the main resource content field.You can drag the map around and zoom to position it. You can choose to add a marker, position it and add an info window to it.

Remember to save the resource!

Then to have it displayed on your web context:

Call this snippet on any template/chunk attached to the LocationResource: [[locationResourcesMap]]

This will display a map with all the default settings.

For customization, you can call the snippet with currently five parameters:

[[locationResources? &docid=`[resource id here]` &parents=`3,27,9` &tpl=`myCustomTpl` &js=`myCustomJS` &css=`myCustomDefaultCSS`]]

Accepts a comma-separated list of resource ids. If any children of that resource are LocationResources and have a marker set, those markers will be add via clustering top the map.This is in addition to the marker that belongs to the LocationResource controlling the main map. This marker will not be clustered. If you don't want it shown, you can remove it.
