I have been using OpenLayers and Geofield to try display the custom data layer (KML polygon) on the. First of all I havent been successful at it despite trying out many mays. Also I realized that the views approach discussed almost everywhere would show the custom maps on a 'new' Page or a 'new' block. But what I want is to show the map with the KML data layer right at each node.

Is this ever possible using Views (Data layer) + Openlayer + geofield in first case?

If so, how do I configure the geofield's map which is displayed in each node?

If I understand you correctly, your question is how to attach a view to a node. You can check out the EVA module:

"Eva" is short for "Entity Views Attachment;" it provides a Views display plugin that allows the output of a View to be attached to the content of any Drupal entity. The body of a node or comment, the profile of a user account, or the listing page for a Taxonomy term are all examples of entity content.

or this other question: Attach a view to a specific node

  • Could you expand this a little bit to explain how this would work with these modules?
