I have a Google Map set on view of the node type. I am mapping several piece pieces of content on that map (group meeting locations, organization meeting places, etc). I would also like to be able to add my users to this map but I'm not given "users" as a content type in my list of options.
For this reason I want to take a subset of my users and create a new content type to add to the map. I know I could map a view the users, so it looks like users are a special content type.
So, it seem like the best approach is to create a content type based on a subset of my users (users that aren't admins, or who register under member, chapter head, etc roles).
I realize I could do this manually, and then have the admin add the users that match the criteria, but that seems like a work around, and fairly tedious.
With new users, I could probably hack together a rule that populates the content type from the profile fields, but I have a substantial amount of registered users already.
So, is there some way to populate a content type with user fields? Such that the content type was populated with the fields from every user of a particular role.
