SP-GeoMap Field with Proximity Search available

A new SP-GeoMap Field is now available for SobiPro 1.1 and it features a Proximity Search!

The SobiPro SP-GeoMap Field extends the types of possible custom fields with a field type for showing the location of an entry on a Google Map and with the possibility to do a Proximity Search.
During adding an entry, it creates coordinates based of the browser's geo-location of the author, or of the entered address.
In the details view the entry will get a map with a marker for this entry.

Additionally it includes a Proximity Search which lets the visitors search entries within the proximity of a given location.
This awesome feature will allow your visitors to comfortably find nearest entries. Those entries are ordered then by the distance to the provided location of the visitor. Contrary to common, so called radius distance search functionalities, it doesn't require the visitor, to specify the radius distance to search within. It spares visitors an unnecessary step, as the search will simply return all results ordered by the distance, visitors can decide by themselves if the result is satisfactory or not. Of course all other search criteria are going to be considered as well.
With this new, great functionality you will be able to provide to your visitors a full featured, professional directory.

This new version of the SP-GeoMap Field is SobiPro 1.1 compliant and there are some bugs fixed as well as languages added.

The SP-GeoMao Field with Proximity Search is available only for our Silver and Gold Members. For our Bronze Members we provide the Basic SP-GeoMap Field without Proximity Search. It has the full functionality as previous versions of the field, but is SobiPro 1.1 compliant.

Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Greek, Spanish, Finnish, French, Farsi, Dutch, Croatian, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Slovak, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese languages added. Many thanks to our translation teams.
