The Geocode Factory
I researched several geocoding plug-ins for a commercial site I was developing and found this to be by far the best. It allowed me to do pretty much exactly what I was after - display all members on a map with different coloured map markers depending on member status and link to their profiles from the marker balloon. I can also display a location map for each member in a tab on their profile page. Geocoding works pretty well and members can also manually positon their marker on the map.
I had a few problems with installation and the documentation could be better, but the developer provides excellent support via both a forum and ticketing system.
I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fully-featured and well-supported geocoding and mapping solution for Joomla.

SOBI2 fo Community Builder
This does exactly what it says. What would be really useful would be if it showed the parent categories of sub categories that are listed. As far as I can tell, it only displays sub-categories and not the parent categories they belong to. Otherwise excellent!
