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.

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.
The MyJoom team is also tuned in in case of problem or to have evolutions.
Don't hesitate to use without moderation !
You can't ask for better support from the one i got immediately when i asked for it! keep up the great work !!!
Installation was easy and although I had a few queries configuring the support was excellent so I had no problems getting things up and running promptly and efficiently.
For me, there is no geolocation extension better than this one.
The developpers team have to continue (perhap's with Joomla! 3.0... :-))
