This is the implementation of the views carousel at the California Institute of the Arts (currently the module name is views_carousel though this may change to have the name 'marquee' in it. As a result, it does conflict with views_carousel at this stage).. This is also meant to be a case study on how to write your own views display plugin (given how short the example is). I do not wish to 'compete' against what views slideshow does (as what it does it pretty darn awesome and so this module may just stay in the sandbox; or become a plugin that can be used w/ views slideshow.
CiviCRM provides proximity searching on CiviCRM generated forms, but there is no way to expose this functionality to Views. CiviCRM Proximity Search borrows heavily from OpenLayers Proximity Search to provide proximity searching to exposed Views forms.
This project is currently in beta status and is being tested on the site of the client I originally developed it for. Please feel free to download, test and let me know if you find any issues.
