I have geocode pairs (lat/long) stored in a child table. I want to use the geocodes for multiple mapping functions...

Use pairs to map one or multiple pins
Use pairs to draw a polygon

I also need to embed these maps into reports and QB forms.

Thank you!

Native QuickBase cannot do this. There are 3rd Partner developers like Juiced Technologies who can easily do this. I used their solution for a client and it works great. here is a link to this product on their site and and an on line demo.

This application has the fifty State Capitols geocoded with lat and lon fields in table States which is a child table of Countries:

I packaged the map in a user defined page but you can get the same result to show up on a dashboard page or form with a small amount of slightly different code.
Hey Dan,

These are nice examples. Have you considered submitting them to the new QuickBase Exchange? There is an "examples" section there now that would lend itself well to a lot of the answers you provide folks.
