SP-GeoMap for SobiPro Module

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
The SobiPro GeoMap Module allows you to show entries in a Joomla! module position from a specific SobiPro section on a Google Map. The map and entries will be loaded on the page after the site has loaded to help improve performance.

A customizable Info Window is also available using a XSLT template within the module. All data for vCards are available also in the module to be used in the template. The info window can be shown on click or mouse over. Entries with same coordinates are grouped to one Info Window.

The entries can be clustered and the map can be set to auto-centring to all shown markers.
An own custom marker for all entries or variable custom markers dependent on data in a (select list or radio) field of an entry can be used.

One unique feature of the SP-GeoMap Module is the ability to show Search Results in the map when the module is shown on the SobiPro search page. This allows you to have a great feature for users to search a specific state or region with the search box, and have the results mapped out for them without the rest of the Section entries showing on the map.
Additionally the module can be set to show only entries of the currently visited category (Dynamic Mode) or of a fixed category.

The module works with SSL and responsive sites. The API key can be added for Google paying customers.

This application is available within a SobiPro club membership among with many other club extensions for SobiPro.

Note: Installs using the SobiPro installer.

This module will only display entries in an entire Section. You cannot set it to show entries from a single category nor could you select more than one category. It is all or nothing.

No layer support and the information displayed in bubbles is limited to just the title of the entry.

In other words this is no where near as feature complete as it should consider the fees associated with the Sobipro membership.
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review.

Your review concerns the first beta version of this module (0.5). The product description states the already implemented features, and the roadmap the features that will be implemented later.
We are the opinion that it is better to release a software earlier with only a few features and implement other features later, than letting the users wait for a long time until they can use the software at all.
Please read always the product descriptions and its roadmap first before you buy, use or review a product.

And as you mention the membership. It does not only provide you with up to 16 applications (dated March 2012), it provides you with the documentation for the products and access to the club forums as well. With these benefits you would have find out, how easy you can adjust the template for the bubble of the module to show other fields you have within your directory, besides the title field.

Thanks :-)

Wonderful add-on to SobiPro. Plus, the support is first-class.
