Quick jump to chapter:

The BASIC SP-GeoMap Field

This application is without proximity/radius search!

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.

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
  • Google API key support
  • SSL support
  • Responsive with gestures on mobile devices
