The map creation is unlimited. Each maps can be customized for each instance via templating and CSS and we provide built-in options like sidebars, geolocation, dynamic radius search and many others!

With Geocode Factory Component, you can create an unlimited number of Google Maps (or custom maps tiles like Openstreetmap or any custom map).

Each map has its unique settings like zoom, zoom range, clustering, size, intro texts, radius search, locate me button (browser position for Android devices, iPhone, iPad, new browsers), etc...

Maps can also be assigned to it's individual menu item if desired or into a module position (free module available).

The bubble can contain any custom fields from the source component, an online status, avatar/image, streetview, distance from radius, waysearch, etc... The bubble is fully customizable with HTML statements, and loaded with a click through ajax to reduce the loading time.

Geocode Factory starting with version 5 introduces the use of plugins for specific extensions to extend the core component. Each additional plugin will create a gateway between Geocode Factory and third party extensions.

Sample: There is a Gateway for Sobipro, the Geocode Factory 5 can read Sobipro data and use them to display makers, geocode entries, filter Sobipro search results, ...

You can mix the markers from multiple third party extensions on the same map. The most part of gateway plugins allow to batch geocode all entries at once from backend.

By default Geocode Factory 5 is delivered with the plugins for the Joomla articles then you can geocode Joomla articles and display them on maps and/or display maps on articles.

The base package is free and it contains:
- The main component and related module

Functionality

Being able to aggregate addresses and to limit the extent to which people can zoom in was especially helpful for this project.

Ease of use

Quite easy to use. I found the ability to duplicate a map especially useful, so I could set up one template and just make small changes

Support

There was one bug I found that my install didn't show the input for google API key. Rick was persistent in writing to me until we fixed it.

Documentation

I found the documentation a bit hard to navigate, but fortunately the was the component works is quite clear, so it was easy to figure out

I used this to: I used this to create a large number of district voting maps for a political activism site, where because of the nature of the site and its members, it was very important to show counts but make sure that exact addresses did not show on the front end to protect their identities.

Functionality

I use this with the CB plugin to map members, it is very flexible in presentation and configuration.

Ease of use

Don't have experience with other geocode components, so can't compare, but it does take some attention to detail to get it to work right.

Support

Great prompt support for the CB plugin, which is a paid option. Subscription required for live support.

Documentation

Could be more in depth, tough with so many options. Useful examples.

I used this to: mapping members of non profit organizations.

Functionality

Very flexible extension


Posted on 10 April 2016
Functionality

The concept with multiple maps and markersets makes this extension very flexible. You can display many different maps!

Ease of use

Even the more advanced features is pretty easy to get hold of. When you understand the markerset concept the rest is easy.

Support

I found a small bug. The developer responded and fixed the bug quickly.

Documentation

I would say the documentation is good but somewhat hard to navigate.

I used this to: Displaying Mosets Tree listings on a map. The concept with multiple maps and markersets as well as choosing what items to display with the help of a filter generator makes this extension very flexible.You can show Mosets listing on one map and Joomla! articles on another map.

One of a kind for K2


Posted on 03 February 2016
Functionality

A lot of different settings.

Ease of use

It is quite easy for the user

Support

Had to resort to the help of the author. In the end, everything worked as it should.

Documentation

Very brief

I used this to: Now my visitors can publish your map when you publish the article K2.

Functionality

Amazing breadth of features. Read the documentation first to see features you may have never considered.

Ease of use

It takes time to understand what all the features do and how they fit together. The documentation leads you through it, and then it's clear.

Support

Rick really cares and is wonderful to work with. He responds immediately to questions and provides great solutions.

Documentation

Complete and well done ... necessary for such a full-featured extension.

I used this to: We use Geocode to create multiple maps for different purposes. Unlimited full-page and module-based maps behave independently of each other. Customizing maps in Community Builder profiles is critical, especially for professional groups who want clients to find each member.

Documentation

Documentation is all over the places and some screenshots doesn't even match the menus of the extension.

Sobipro Nearby Entries is a Joomla module that easily displays the nearest places from the current SobiPro entry. The nearby places can be shown from the same Sobipro section with the current entry or from a different section. For example if the current entry is a museum page, using the “Sobipro Nearby Entries Module” you are able to show hotels in neighborhood or another accommodation places geolocated near the current museum. This is a great tool which will make your website more efficient and enjoyable for your visitors. Based on the parameters set in the backend module administration interface, when the visitors access the detail view of a SobiPro entry the module will display a list with entries which are geolocated in the vicinity of the active entry. Requirements : To use the SobiPro Nearby Entries Module you must have the SobiPro entries geolocated. Usually this is done by fetching the coordinates for them from the postal address of the entry (zipcode, street, country ... etc). You can do that using MyJoom Geocode Factory or if you are SobiPro silver level club member you can use Sigsiu’s SobiPro field called ‘Geomap’. 1.3.3 # third party site url fix 1.3.2 ^ added Sobipro language support 1.3.1 # unit fix 1.3.0 + Display only on SP entries 1.2.0 + External DB access 1.1.0 # fixed 0=unlimited # fixed notices display 1.1.0 + First release 1.0.0 + Beta version

You can also locate the user at page load to geocode their position (useful for mobile users like iPhone, iPad, Android and newer browsers). After the center point is entered, the user selects a radius. The radius select box can be customized in the administrator panel with your own comma-separated list of distances in the units you define (kilometer, miles, nautical miles).

There are two parts of this search entry: 1) Starting point as described above. 2) Desired search radius which is configurable in the administration panel. After the center point is entered, the user selects a radius. The radius select box can be customized in the administrative panel with your own comma-separated list of distances in the units you define (kilometer, miles, nautical miles). In metric unit, it's possible to display the values in meters. There is also an option to display the distance from center point on each vcard in the search result listing and the vcard entries can optionally sorted by distance. Work also with sales area radius : you define for each entry a radius (sales area), and the radius search find the entries even is their center point is not into the search radius. Sample, I search in a radius of 20km, and the center of the entry is outside this radius (at 22km), but if this entry have a sales area radius of 5km, then it will appear in results. In order to work, Sobipro Radius Search app need to have geocoded entries (entries with latitude and longitude).
