Standard Joomla Articles, can be bound to geographic features such as POINTs, LINEs and POLYGONs and the resulting maps can be shown in the article page and in an overview map. A single article can be represented by more than one geographic type: so that you can have simultaneously a set of POINTS, some POLYGONS and some LINES for a single Joomla article.

Articles on the map are grouped by layers, appearance can be fully customized through layers configuration.

GeoContent also allows to add geographic items that are not linked to articles.

GeoContent is "free" as in "speech" but not as in "beer", it is only available in bundle with commercial professional paid support, while the lincense remains a free software licence: GPL V.3

Professionally supported

This component is professionally supported, this means that we will

  • fix bugs
  • provide reliable remote assistance and support on the component for 12 months from your subscription
  • send you all the updates of the component for 12 months

Advanced input methods

Perhaps the coolest feature, is the availability of two advanced input methods for your geographic objects:

  • users can directly draw geographic features from the control panel through an embedded Google Map editor
  • users can load geographic data from a GPX (standard GPS format) file
  • the new version supports map editing from the front-end too

KML export

Coming to the output methods, an interesting optional feature is KML export : yes, you can directly publish your GeoContent powered Joomla! website into Google Earth!

Fully configurable

Since articles are grouped by layers, you can change the appearance of a layer and have all map items that belong to that layer changed accordingly.

For each layer, you can style:
- Line/Poly/Point color
- Line/Poly/Point width/tranparency
- Polygon fill color/transparency
- Polygon fill transparency
- Point icon and size

Of course you can configure several aspects of the main map appearance:

  • Table Of Content (TOC) type (hidden, list, select)
  • TOC position (left, top, right, bottom)
  • TOC and main map width (onyl useful for TOC position left and right)
  • Which layers should be activated at start (none, all, selected)
  • Map dimensions
  • KML icon (hide or show)


Create maps with different layers, items and kml data.

Ease of use

Easy to set up and customize.


Fast and individual support. Thanks again!!

Value for money

Absolutely worth it.

I used this to: I used the component to display a map with kml-layer as well as several map items.

I used this extension to create several geoblogs and it fits perfect for this purpose.

It easy to install and to set up... you can customize the layout in an easy way via CSS.

Moreover the support service is fast and accurate.

This is a fine component, which works flawlessly on my 1.7 website. Embedding Vimeo, YouTube and Picasa works like a charm. Recommended!

Thank you Mr Passoti for great support! Fast & efficient!

Great functionality

Great functionality, great support and very open to enhancements.

Choose which layers to display on an overview map

Search the map for a location

Associate a map to an article

Create and display different layers

I would thoroughly recommend this component for displaying maps on a Joomla website.


The software works as advertised, is well-supported and is being upgraded. What more can I say! Highly recommended

Excellent application for geolocation over google map.

The app is still under development even if a stable version has been released. This is very good because the developer listen to your necessities through a tracking bug system where you can insert even your whishes. Very fast response in support even in holiday time.

There are many ways to use google maps with joomla content items. What exactly i wish?

1: binding joomla content items to google maps,

2: showing of google map within a content item with a marker for content item,

3: showing of google map with markers linked to all content items,

4: showing of layer list near google map with possibility to show only markers from single or more layers,

5: building of routes and polygons based on content items.

There component and content plugin fulfill all of listed wishes. The price you pay for this extension is the price you pay normally for one hour of programmers job. For this price you get all listed functions and support with unreachable quality. You can waste you time with comparsion and using of other extensions, but if you regard highly your time, you will not use other then this one.

One of the better commercial extensions I've purchased. Clean, simple to use and install, and extremely powerful. A mini GIS tool for Joomla. the developer sends out updates that are helpful (not spam) and responds quickly to questions, issues, and feature suggestions. I've been using it for almost a year, and support and function is still perfect. This extension is limited only by your imagination- I think of new uses everyday for my dozen or so sites...

Great Extension

This was the perfect extension for my community trail site. I needed something more than just maps and plotting points. I wanted to overlay trails and other features on top of Google Maps so that the viewer can scroll or zoom through the maps. This worked great. Using the provided tools, I was able to draw my trail lines easily. I have about 25 different trails/maps displayed on my site. Well worth the money. Thanks for the great job.

This extension consists in an editor plugin that makes possible to select a file on the server and attach it in the article body. The list of file is presented as directory tree or a flat list (as an option) and the hyperlink to the file is created with just a single click on the file. The plugin is fully customizable: the base directory can be selected, custom HTML code can be inserted inside the hyperlink, custom class and icon can be specified as well as a filter to only show certain files in the listing.
