If the NWS issues an alert with geometries, the script already displays a map of the alert area.
This update to Base-USA template now shows a green pin over the station's location (based on Settings.php entries for latitude, longitude, and cityname)

The update has 3 files (nws-alerts-details-inc V1.09, nws-alerts-config.php V1.05 (needs your customization) and alert-images/location.png).

Available on the updates page and for non-template use, on the GitHub distribution

I've attached a screenshot of how it looks (using a test version)

Ken, I did the update but then got a message at the top of my site stating I needed to run a cron job, which I have been doing already.

I have since reverted back to the files that were working, just wonder if you have an idea of why?
I did wait for the cron job to "cycle" but no change.

If you just replaced with the updated nws-alerts-config.php, then it has a default of $noCron = true;

To use a cron, that setting has to be $noCron = false;

Copy corresponding settings from your old nws-alerts-config.php to the new copy (which has more settings), then upload the updated copy.
