ChangeLog: Geocoder (config)

Fri Apr 08, 2011 5:37 pm

ChangeLog: Geocoder v3.0

This plugins enables you to create new Geocoders. You may for example want to create a new geocoder which first checks geofences, then POIs and as a final resort CloudMade and/or Google. This is easily done using this geocoder.

Steps to Install

1. Login to SiteAdmin
2. Go to "Plugins".
3. Download and install "Geocoder".

Edit and create new Geocoders

1. Go to Maps -> Geocoder

Here you can edit and create new geocoders.

Use a "Cache" provider before any external service like Google, OneMap or CloudMade. That will significantly increase performance and use less round trips to the external service. This is in particular important if you use a service with a limited number of geocoding requests per day like Google. using "Cache" typically saves 80% of the external requests.

Only one Cache provider per geocoder will be effective.

Turn off Live Address

You can turn off Live Address for the entire server under SiteAdmin -> Maps -> Geocoder.

If you just want to enable/disable Live Address for specific applications use the _LiveAddress privilege.

Application settings

You can specify a separate time period to keep data for each application.

1. Go to Application, and select an application.
2. Set Geocoder for application.

Under Settings -> Localization you can set the default geocoder for the server.
