Basic concept

The OpenLayers module allows to display any content with geo data (node, user, taxonomy terms) as layers on top of base maps (base layers) in map presets. It provides a user interface to configure the styles of this content (color of dots, thickness of lines, highlighting, ...), and the behaviour of the maps (zooming, tool tips, ...).
Layers, map presets, styles and behaviours are stored as objects.
The configurations can be exported to code or included to features with the Features module.
The OpenLayers modules also provides a CCK field for adding geo data to nodes.
