Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
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!

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.

Jomsocial plugin Map and Geocode plugin

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.

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!

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

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.

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!

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.

What I like about this product is that after a standard 20 second install it could immediately interface with existing components such as SobiPro or Mosets tree. I had a map up on the screen with multiple markers in minutes.

Support has also been very good. For the price this is a no-brainer. Highly recommended.

The product is easy to install. There are unlimited options available however I am not very good at CSS.

The author has provided excellent support at answering questions. I highly recommend this component.

The technical support is absolutely the greatest. I had a problem which related to my local development server (which could not be duplicated by Rick). After I described the problem, he was able to fix the issue.

So add great support to a great extension and you have an unbeatable combination.

Having used Joomla since 2005 I´ve been exposed to a lot of software, and different documentation or lack of the same. This software is probably one of the best I have tried to work with.

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 am using Geocode Factory for a site with about 300 members to show their position for networking. Geocode Factory just works great to show different markers on the map.

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!

Just great!

I have used Geocode factory with the new mosets tree 3.0. to display a listing of projects.

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 !
