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

If you need to be able to geocode entries from Sobi2/SobiPro or members from CB/Jomsocial, then seriously.....look no further!
For the money, this is in a league of its own, therefore I HIGHLY recommend it!
Great work Z.Rick! I look forward to future releases that blow my mind even more!
The possibility of configuring individual markersets, enables the possibility to present maps with field specific results.
The use of the plugin 'Geocode Factory SobiPro search results' makes the presentation of the SOBI Pro results on a map possible. The presentation of the search results is also highly configurable.
Geocode Factory is the product no be missed for everyone who want to have total freedom and full control to present SOBI Pro items on a geographical level.
The support is outstanding. Any question you will have will be answered professionally and completely by Rick.
I've been develop some of social network website that require GEO feature which can locate member/record location or calculate radius distance base on enter address. This component satisfy all of my requirement.
I feel it worst every penny i invested. Support 4 big guy CB,Sobi2,Sobipro or Joomsocial in just 1 single component. Automatic recognize all exist data from third party component above.
2.For regular user:
Very easy to use and implement to other component. Have couple modules-plugin you should buy to fit what you expect in your site.
Code very organize, easy to read and change.
All problem or bug i found post in forum or open support ticket Z.Rick address very fast. New release always come after that for bug fix.
High recommend! Author very active. New version almost update every month.
Some concern for Author:
Website have many sample and information but need more organize. I get lost when try to find Document for each purchase product.
For Buyer: careful when download your files. He set the limit of number of download. I got that mistake before realize. So save your download for new version. :)
That it. Hope this help.
I’ve been using this plug-in now for a few weeks now and I have been impressed enough to write a review. This plugin has many features which are set out very well and easy to custom fit to your needs. The admin side and customization is very impressive, which is well laid out and logical. It allows you to customize the front end look in detail and gives you examples of setting it up.
5 ***** Stars – Ease of use and Admin setup
4.9 ***** Stars for Features (see later)
The front end seems to load very quickly, and I haven’t seen any styling issues or odd behaviour yet. The reason I haven’t given it 5 stars for features is it doesn’t have the feature I needed, in fact no geocoding plugin has (or is ever likely to) so 4.9 is probably being a little harsh :).
Code base and Support
Even though I needed this to do something that it wasn’t ever intended to do the developer still offered advice and support to help me out. I feel the developer went out of his way to help me to extend the code to do what I needed to do and always came back to me with 24hrs! The code is very well written and is a good guide of how to write components.
5 ***** Stars – Codebase
5.1 ***** Stars for support
From all the geocoding plugins I’ve used this is the best by far!
