The SP-GeoMap Module

The SP-GeoMap Module for SobiPro allows to show entries of a SobiPro directory (section) on a geographical map in a Joomla module position. A customizable info window using a XSLT template within the module can be used to show data of the specific entry.

The module comes with several features such as:

  • Entries close to each other (depending on the zoom level) can be clustered.
  • Initial zoom level and start point coordinates can be set.
  • The map can be automatically centred to all shown markers.
  • Entries with same coordinates are grouped to one info window.
  • The info window can be shown on click or hover.
  • The content of the info window can be styled via XSL template and CSS.
  • Roadmap, satellite, terrain, hybrid views are available.
  • Several map controls can be used on the map.
  • A custom marker can be used.
  • Entry specific custom marker can be used.
  • Category dependent custom marker can be used.
  • Only entries of the currently visited category page can be shown on the map.
  • Only entries of a specific category can be shown on the map.
  • Several map modules can be used to show different content.
  • The search results on SobiPro's search page are shown on the map.
  • The map and entries will be loaded first after the site has been loaded for performance.
  • The module works with SSL.
  • The module works on responsive/mobile sites.
  • An API key can be added for Google maps.

Note: At the moment only Google Maps is supported.
