Introduction

Geotagging

Geocode Factory is a mapping component that allows you to display various types of Joomla! content on a Google Map. Geocode Factory can use data from Community builder (profiles), Jomsocial (profiles and Events), Sobi2, Mosets tree, SobiPro, Jevents, AdsManager, Joomla article, and GPS tools. The maps can be customized for each instance via templating and CSS and we provide many built in options like side bars, geolocation, radius parameters and many others!

  • Get this

With Geocode Factory Component, you can create an unlimited number of Google Maps (v3) or Openstreetmap (or other custom map). Each map has its unique parameters like zoom, zoom range, clustering, size, intro texts, radius search, locate me button (browser position for Android devices, iPhone, iPad, new browsers), etc... Any map can also be assigned to it's individual menu item if desired or into a module position (free module available).

The capabilities of Geocode Factory are extended by use of "markersets". Markersets are how the mapped data that shows on a particular map is defined and filtered. Creation of a markerset is very easy and multiple markersets can be displayed on the same map. For example if you wanted a map that displayed both the locations of your Jomsocial members and your SobiPro entries, Geocode Factory can do this!

Custom map markers can be used in Geocode Factory. A personal image or the profile avatar can be used as a marker icon. The markers can be linked by lines in multiple ways. For example you could show connection lines between Jomsocial friends or lines between Sobi entries and their owner. The combinations are endless! The markers are loaded as XML to increase performance instead of plain text javascript and a caching system is also an option.

The bubble (normal or tabbed) can contain any custom fields from the source component, an online status, avatar (icon for sobi2), streetview, distance from radius, waysearch, etc. The bubble is fully customizable with HTML statements, and loaded with a click with ajax to reduce the loading time.

You can mix profiles and points of interest on the same map (with different icons ans bubbles), for example, by showing the Sobi2 entries in a 50km radius from the logged user.

If you have existing profiles, it's easy to fetch the geographical coordinates (geocode) for them by the user postal address (zipcode, street, country ... etc). The process is launched in one click and the program divide the profiles in packages, to prevent max time execution errors. You can also silent geocode users during profile creation and edition. Google Apikey is no more needed.

This package includes :
Jomsocial plugin Map and Geocode plugin
Community Builder plugin Map and Geocode plugin

GeoFactory was exactly what we needed! Is a very versatile and easy to use Map Component.

The support is excellent,quick and personable! I highly recommend GeoFactory for you Joomla mapping needs.


Simply the Best


Posted on 11 June 2014

My review is primarily about the service. The product is excellent and does what it is advertised to do and more.



The technology and ease of use makes Geocode Factory exceptional, but the customer and tech support makes it world-class.



I cannot recall ever encountering support as quick, responsive and thorough as Z-Rick. (Pronounced Zed Rick or Cedric). Just amazing!


This is a remarkably flexible mapping solution, because it allows multiple maps to be created for different purposes.



There are main maps for a primary page and module-based maps. All can be customized to show the users or map information that applies to a particular purpose. It can do so much that I highly encourage reading the documentation thoroughly before you start. I found I was able to do things I never considered, and they helped make my sites unique and interesting.



Of particular use for us is the association of Geocode with Community Builder. The ability to customize maps in a tab in each user's Profile has been a critical capability, especially for professional groups looking to show clients how to reach them.



Rick, the developer, is a joy to work with and very responsive. You can't go wrong here.


Excellant Mapping Product


Posted on 03 February 2014

I was looking for a mapping product to interface with a directory that we are creating. Geocode Factory was almost exactly what we needed. The modifications that were needed were done in a very reasonable time frame and the support has been very good. I would definitely recomend this product to anyone wanting a mapping application.


After some little Problems with my responsive template, it works fine. The support were always fast and competent. Theres current only one wish ... A great feature is the integration of joomla content. There are only one wish but this is in my opinion absolutely important. There are currently no automatic Link from the marker to the full-text article. That means, it is linked to the category and the article must be sought there again. If the developer to still work it, I forgive 100 points!

Owner's reply: Dear Blonde1969, first of all, thanks for your review. Geocode Factory allow to use Joomla articles (from com_content) on map, each time the article is saved, the coordinates are geocoded with our special algorithm. And on the map, the markers are always linked with the article text/title. This all is done without hacking any component. You find the documentation on www.myjoom.com

I have been using mapping in a number of applications we have developed over the last three years and have tried many mapping applications.

We have always come back to using the Myjoom components in the end. These products work incredibly well together and in those instances where we have required assistance, it has been quick accurate and precise.

I can not recommend this product high enough.

There simply is no better mapping application in the system that I have come across.

Great work to your development and skill in creating this product.


Great component, feature-filled

The support is really great, I was helped to resolve my case with great professionalism and patience

GREAT


Awesome product


Posted on 08 November 2013

Thank you to Rick and this product, such good support and excellent features.



Rick is such a reasonable person and makes time for his customers questions. Thank you for this.



It's what makes all the difference in a commercial package.



Cheers Rick.


Had to upgrade and extend an existing google maps module due to GM v3 API. This component blew my mind. It works out of the box and integrates easily with all existing components like CB and Sobi.



Regarding the support I can say it's excellent! Had an issue with a faulty zip file and a small bug, all sorted within half an hour.



Very good experience!


a perfect job


Posted on 12 October 2013

I used a GF site that collects trekking trails, mountain biking, etc.. The geolocation is PERFECT, the component works perfectly and is also easy to use. Clear and comprehensive documentation. And, above all, a great technical support (thanks Rick!). I recommend it to everyone.

Sobipro Nearby Entries is a Joomla module that easily displays the nearest places from the current SobiPro entry. The nearby places can be shown from the same Sobipro section with the current entry or from a different section. For example if the current entry is a museum page, using the “Sobipro Nearby Entries Module” you are able to show hotels in neighborhood or another accommodation places geolocated near the current museum. This is a great tool which will make your website more efficient and enjoyable for your visitors. Based on the parameters set in the backend module administration interface, when the visitors access the detail view of a SobiPro entry the module will display a list with entries which are geolocated in the vicinity of the active entry. Requirements : To use the SobiPro Nearby Entries Module you must have the SobiPro entries geolocated. Usually this is done by fetching the coordinates for them from the postal address of the entry (zipcode, street, country ... etc). You can do that using MyJoom Geocode Factory or if you are SobiPro silver level club member you can use Sigsiu’s SobiPro field called ‘Geomap’. 1.3.3 # third party site url fix 1.3.2 ^ added Sobipro language support 1.3.1 # unit fix 1.3.0 + Display only on SP entries 1.2.0 + External DB access 1.1.0 # fixed 0=unlimited # fixed notices display 1.1.0 + First release 1.0.0 + Beta version

This Radius Search Application is a native SobiPro Application (plugin) and fully integrated with and installed within SobiPro. The Radius Search allows you to add a field into the native SobiPro search form to be able to add both centerpoint and radius distance criteria to the SobiPro search function. It works in conjunction with and is entirely integrated with that form. You can search just by radius distance or with any combination of native SobiPro search criteria. The MyJoom Radius Search Application allows you to add a field into the native SobiPro search function. This field allows the user to enter any type of address (street and/or city and/or ZIP and/or any data that can be located in Google maps). Once the user start to type a place name, the fields try to complete the user’s query (exactly like the maps.google.com search input box). The user could also use an optional ‘Locate me’ button to geocode their position (useful for mobile users like iPhone, iPad, Android and newer browsers). There are two parts of this search entry: 1) Starting point as described above. 2) Desired search radius which is configurable in the administration panel. After the center point is entered, the user selects a radius. The radius select box can be customized in the administrative panel with your own comma-separated list of distances in the units you define (kilometer, miles, nautical miles). In metric unit, it's possible to display the values in meters. There is also an option to display the distance from center point on each vcard in the search result listing and the vcard entries can optionally sorted by distance. Work also with sales area radius : you define for each entry a radius (sales area), and the radius search find the entries even is their center point is not into the search radius. Sample, I search in a radius of 20km, and the center of the entry is outside this radius (at 22km), but if this entry have a sales area radius of 5km, then it will appear in results. In order to work, Sobipro Radius Search app need to have geocoded entries (entries with latitude and longitude). For this you can use SP club geo field, or Geocode Factory or other...
