The SP-GeoMap Field

This application is with radius or proximity search!
The SP-GeoMap Field

The SobiPro SP-GeoMap Field extends the types of possible fields for SobiPro with a field type for showing the location of an entry on a geographical map. While editing an entry, it creates coordinates based on the geo-location of the current IP address of the author, or of the entered address. Thereupon the entry will get a map with a marker on its location in the details view.

Besides the normal radius search, the field gives you also the possibility to do a proximity search to find entries within the proximity to a given location. The proximity search is a RADIUS SEARCH without the LIMITATION to a radius. With this improved usability the selection of an entry can be done immediately without changing the radius and perform a re-search if the results don't fit the idea.

Key Features:

  • Geographical map for each entry to show its location on a map
  • Map sizes and zoom level adjustable
  • Google Maps and Leaflet/OpenStreetMap providers available
  • Zoom and scale controls available
  • Satellite, roadmap, hybrid and terrain views for Google Maps available
  • Map Type, Street View, Rotate and Fullscreen controls available for Google Maps
  • Geo location based on a given address while adding an entry
  • Alternatively IP based browser geo location while adding an entry
  • Radius search for entries within distance of a given address or of the current position
  • Proximity search for entries within distance of a given address or of the current position
  • Proximity search has no LIMITATION to a radius; no need to change the radius and perform a re-search if the results don't fit the idea
  • Several providers for geo location in search view available
  • Auto-complete of addresses for geo location in search view available
  • Distances shown in search results either in miles or in kilometres
  • Google API key support
  • SSL support
  • Responsive with gestures on mobile devices
