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
- The Joomla content article gateway plugin
- The Joomla content article geocode plugin

Optionally and for friendly prices you can add gateway plugin for Sobipro, Mosets Tree, Community Builder (including profile map plugin), Jomsocial (including profile map plugin), Jomsocial Events, ... we are currently writing some other.

Functionality
It is really functional and works like expected
100
Ease of use
Because of the number of functionalities and flexibility I spent one day to learn everything (too many possibilities).
100
Support
I did not buy the support package, but I bought two plugins (seablos and jomsocial) and the support for them was very good!
90
Documentation
Documentation is good, but It is not the best! It is sufficient for experimented users.
I used this to: I use it in several sites with jomsocial plugin and seblod plugin
100
Functionality
Being able to aggregate addresses and to limit the extent to which people can zoom in was especially helpful for this project.
96
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
100
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.
85
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.
100
Functionality
I use this with the CB plugin to map members, it is very flexible in presentation and configuration.
90
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.
100
Support
Great prompt support for the CB plugin, which is a paid option. Subscription required for live support.
90
Documentation
Could be more in depth, tough with so many options. Useful examples.
I used this to: mapping members of non profit organizations.

Very flexible extension


Posted on 10 April 2016
100
Functionality
The concept with multiple maps and markersets makes this extension very flexible. You can display many different maps!
100
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.
100
Support
I found a small bug. The developer responded and fixed the bug quickly.
97
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.

Lots of features still findin out new stuff

Ease of use
In the beginning a little bit difficult
100
Support
The support is very good and replies quickly (Rick)

Documentation
Difficult to find could be better, but maybe i did'n't look well
I used this to: K2 item lokations and CB user lokations on my location based website. Thank you for this great piece of software, keep up the good work!

Functionality
Basistoepassing van (voorlopig) 1 kaart met markers
75
Ease of use
Voor het basisgebeuren, zonder extra wensen, is dit goed te begrijpen en snel te installeren. De documentatie is opgesteld voor dit gebruik
85
Support
Ik kreeg tot twee keer toe support zonder support-plan. Top! Noodzakelijk want nergens anders een oplossing. Support plans zijn duur
60
Documentation
Matig. Voor basisgebruik redelijk gedocumenteerd. Alle geavanceerdere vragen ben je verplicht een supportplan te nemen. geen forum, faq
I used this to: basisgebruik. Slechts een kaart met ca 50 markers. Ik loop tegen twee vervelende dingen op. Resultaten zijn verschillend tussen live website en locale server, ondanks gelijke instellingen in extensie en 2. je wordt heel snel gedwongen gebruik te gaan maken van support.
100
Functionality
Amazing breadth of features. Read the documentation first to see features you may have never considered.
100
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.
100
Support
Rick really cares and is wonderful to work with. He responds immediately to questions and provides great solutions.
100
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.

Great Product
