FocalPoint Component

FocalPoint is a unique and comprehensive mapping solution for Joomla designed specifically for use as a map based directory containing many locations.

The main feature of FocalPoint is the ability for users to search and filter your locations by clicking items in the map legend. Users can easily filter locations to just a select few with only a click or two and then navigate through to a dedicated page for that location.

Features:
★ Add hundreds of locations to a single map.
★ Define map legends and different location types.
★ Categorise your locations into types represented by a toggle in the map legend.
★ Multi-categorisation. Assign your locations to more than one content type.
★ Define custom content for each location type using CCK functionality.
★ Field types include textbox, textarea, image, link, email, select list and multi-select list.
★ Customise the infobox descriptions and images.
★ All Google Maps features and functions like street view, pan, zoom, satellite, etc are configurable options.
★ FocalPoint is responsive and will work on any device.
★ Also has a list view in addition to the map view.
★ Template friendly. The FocalPoint stylesheets don’t contain any font, size, line-height or colour declarations whatsoever.
★ Includes over 200 custom designed marker pins included completely free.

If you are looking for a flexible and full-featured mapping component for your site, look no further.

FocalPoint Maps is excellent in many regards. You can create maps that contain multiple properties, with multiple property types, selectable pins on the maps, extra/custom fields for each property type, and more. It is stable, easy to use, and has fantastic support from the developer - something that seems to be pretty uncommon with many extensions.

In my case, I needed something that could display properties for a leasing company and this fit the bill quite effectively.

While this is a free component now, there is a paid option, which adds a number of useful plugins to the system, such as full-screen view, marker clustering, fitbounds to contain all of the properties at an automatic zoom level, and more. The options that these plugins add are worth the price of admission, in my opinion.

Check this out - I don't think you will be disappointed with its capabilities and customizability.

I have probably tried most of the Google map components, but none as extensive and simple to use as this component. It is not only a Google map facility but it also works like a directory with a very good looking layout. The support is excellent. I had a few requests and a day later I was enjoying the fix/addition. If every developer was as sincere as the Focalpoint team it would be great. If you are after a good Google map extension with excellent support do not hesitate, worth every penny/dollar!

This mapping component blows away all other Joomla Map Components. Trust me when I say I have purchased every single one... and if you are in need of a full customization with ease of use, and a professional look and feel that leaves the other Joomla map components in the dust... buy this one!

I have only one item on my wishlist for this mapping component, and that is the integration of Yootheme ZOO. With the sever lack of ZOO mapping components that have the same A+ capabilities as this one, there is a huge market for selling your component to all of those faithful ZOO users that yearn for a top-notch geo-mapping component.

-Thank you for making such a fantastic (badly needed) Joomla map component.

I can't believe this is free! This component lets you enter multiple locations into multiple maps, and assign custom icons. It also has a two level categorization system so you can show customized icons. Simple example: I can show "Restaurants" and "Salons". Within "Restaurants", I can show "Pizzeria", "Coffee Shop", "Fine Dining" etc. and assign each sub-type a unique icon. Within Salon, I can show "Hair Salon", "Nail Salon" etc., in a similar way. You get the point. There is a selector (at the bottom by default, but can be changed), so if all you are interested in is Pizza, you just select "Pizzeria" under "Restaurant" and you will see all the pizzerias to choose from. It also has a way to say that a business is multi-purpose. For example, if you have a grocery store that also has a restaurant, you can say it is principally a grocery store, but secondarily a restaurant.

It has full Google map support, zoom, pan, satellite, street view, the works. It is also responsive to window size changes.

The developer is extremely helpful, if you have questions.

There are also paid extensions, but I have not explored those yet. Probably will after I get to know it a bit.

In terms of limitations, here are the ones that I think are limitations (but maybe because I don't quite understand it yet):

1. You cannot have the same address be part of two different maps, without double entry. I want the Map to be a "view" into the collection of addresses, so I can choose the view to display for a particular situation.

2. Unlike a "module" based approach, you cannot have two different "looks" to different uses. I would very much like to have a look with headings, and one without (for embedding into a mobile app), but I am not sure this can be done.

3. The address entry doesn't auto-geocode, you have to do it as a separate manual step (but there is a handy tool provided for that purpose).

As you can see, the limitations are more or less just nit-picking, or wish-list items. I really love this extension!

FocalPoint is hard to describe but easy to use. A sort of Google Maps/CCK/Directory mashup, it can be used as an excellent map based directory with search and filters and including any type of custom field you like. FocalPoint works well with responsive templates and looks good on any screen width.
