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!
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.

Jomsocial plugin Map and Geocode plugin

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.
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
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.
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!
Support has also been very good. For the price this is a no-brainer. Highly recommended.
So add great support to a great extension and you have an unbeatable combination.
First of all - it is easy to work with, it's intuitive, it uses tooltips in the backend, so you easily get an idea how something works, without you have to look it up in the documentation. And the documentation itself is really well done. The team behind must have spend a lot of hours on it. On top of this, the developer answers questions really fast and he is right down to the point.
If you are looking for a maps component for your site - well, here it is!
I had a special feature and Rick would help me with just great support. Even additional custom feature and paid extra work was in time and to my full satisfaction!
I had a problem with my site and the developper went very quickly with a solution to fix. (on sunday...) Support is absolutely great, you are not left in the wood ! Also thumbs up for the DOCUMENTATION.
On the sofware itself, the amount of customization to display in the map is beyond my expectations both on the markers inside the map and the overal layout options.
Well 5 stars product !
When developing a site locally, I had a glitch show up due to a configuration issue . The issue was a local server setting unique to my PC. Regardless, the response to the support ticket was very thorough and very quick.
It doesn't get any better than this!
We used Jomsocial for a project and chosed the Geocode factory extension to Geotag the member offices.
From the beginning it was 1 office / member and it worked lika a charm all the way.
After the launch our client wanted to Geotag 3 offices / member.
That is very easy to accomplish with this extension.
We sent some questions about the config to Z Rick late one evening and had the answer in the mailbox next morning.
That´s some customer service and support!
We had the soultion running in less then 48 hours thanks to this and we are very greatfull.
We highly recommend the extension and the Dev for his outstandning customer service!
We will for sure use this extension for more projects.
