GeoContent ComponentModulePlugin

GeoContent is a new Joomla! 2.5/3.x component that allows embedding Google Maps into a Joomla! website. The new version for Joomla! also supports OpenLayers maps.


Standard Joomla Articles, can be bound to geographic features such as POINTs, LINEs and POLYGONs and the resulting maps can be shown in the article page and in an overview map. A single article can be represented by more than one geographic type: so that you can have simultaneously a set of POINTS, some POLYGONS and some LINES for a single Joomla article.

Articles on the map are grouped by layers, appearance can be fully customized through layers configuration.

GeoContent also allows to add geographic items that are not linked to articles.

GeoContent is "free" as in "speech" but not as in "beer", it is only available in bundle with commercial professional paid support, while the lincense remains a free software licence: AGPL V.3

Professional support

This component is professionally supported, this means that we will

* fix bugs
* provide reliable remote assistance and support on the component for 12 months from your subscription
* send you all the updates of the component for 12 months

Advanced input methods

Perhaps the coolest feature, is the availability of two advanced input methods for your geographic objects:

* users can directly draw geographic features from the control panel through an embedded Google Map editor
* users can load geographic data from a GPX (standard GPS format) file
* the new version supports map editing from the front-end too

KML export

Coming to the output methods, an interesting optional feature is KML export : yes, you can directly publish your GeoContent powered Joomla! website into Google Earth!

Fully configurable

Since articles are grouped by layers, you can change the appearance of a layer and have all map items that belong to that layer changed accordingly.

For each layer, you can style:
* Line/Poly/Point color
* Line/Poly/Point width/tranparency
* Polygon fill color/transparency
* Polygon fill transparency
* Point icon and size

Of course you can configure several aspects of the main map appearance:
* Table Of Content (TOC) type (hidden, list, select)
* TOC position (left, top, right, bottom)
* TOC and main map width (onyl useful for TOC position left and right)
* Which layers should be activated at start (none, all, selected)
* Map dimensions
* KML icon (hide or show)

It easy to install and to set up... you can customize the layout in an easy way via CSS.

Moreover the support service is fast and accurate.

This is a fine component, which works flawlessly on my 1.7 website. Embedding Vimeo, YouTube and Picasa works like a charm. Recommended!

Excellent application for geolocation over google map.
The app is still under development even if a stable version has been released. This is very good because the developer listen to your necessities through a tracking bug system where you can insert even your whishes. Very fast response in support even in holiday time.

There are many ways to use google maps with joomla content items. What exactly i wish?
1: binding joomla content items to google maps,
2: showing of google map within a content item with a marker for content item,
3: showing of google map with markers linked to all content items,
4: showing of layer list near google map with possibility to show only markers from single or more layers,
5: building of routes and polygons based on content items.
There component and content plugin fulfill all of listed wishes. The price you pay for this extension is the price you pay normally for one hour of programmers job. For this price you get all listed functions and support with unreachable quality. You can waste you time with comparsion and using of other extensions, but if you regard highly your time, you will not use other then this one.

One of the better commercial extensions I've purchased. Clean, simple to use and install, and extremely powerful. A mini GIS tool for Joomla. the developer sends out updates that are helpful (not spam) and responds quickly to questions, issues, and feature suggestions. I've been using it for almost a year, and support and function is still perfect. This extension is limited only by your imagination- I think of new uses everyday for my dozen or so sites...

This was the perfect extension for my community trail site. I needed something more than just maps and plotting points. I wanted to overlay trails and other features on top of Google Maps so that the viewer can scroll or zoom through the maps. This worked great. Using the provided tools, I was able to draw my trail lines easily. I have about 25 different trails/maps displayed on my site. Well worth the money. Thanks for the great job.

I never normally take the plunge and buy software without seeing a few good reviews first, but there was something about the look of this software that I liked, so I thought I would give it a try and boy was I glad I did.

Great way of displaying Google maps with Joomla articles right in the maps themselves.

Excellent customer service, the developer, was very helpful and speedy with answering any questions I had and sorted out some bugs for me.

Thank you
