Fox is a form processor which works with standard PmWiki
(:input...:) form controls.

I don't see that it would be possible to use a google map as
an input control to submit user entry data.

It may be best to work from within the map API, so user input is
directly translated into map changes, as is the case with
adding flags etc. The data should be stored within a map layer.

But perhaps others can give you different ideas and help.
