    To my knowledge we don't really have a feature to apply a map to forms so I will gladly forward this request to our developers via a feature request ticket. I think this design is a really good one at that. Our developement team will look into this for consideration and we will let you know if and when something like this gets implemented.

    After inspecting it some it looks like they've used JavaScript in conjunction with the Google Maps API to manifest this data then they created a sort of fuzzy search to tether them both together. I'm not sure that this would be possible to input on the form since it uses Javascript/Jquery for the script sourcing in it's code and that would likely interfere with our own Library which would probably break the form. I think it might be possible to do this by getting your hands dirty with some custom programming and the form's source code to work around this though. I will have to look into this some more and I will let you know if I am able to figure it out further but it will take some time.
