GeoLocation is a component that provides a Location content type, as well as access to longitude-latitude and possibly IP location information and other related/associated services.
The package aims to offer various geolocation/GIS-related features for other components. Currently, it provides the following:
- A Location content type that stores address and location (longitude and latitude) information
- A common API to various GeoIP data libraries (in progress)
- A GeoLocator tool that provides for example distance calculation algorithm
The first goal of the project is to stabilize and complete the existing features, especially those that are required by the EventRegistration component. In the near future, features such as Google Maps integration are planned.
There is a google group (geolocation) for discussions and an irc channel (#firstname.lastname@example.org) as well. Sometime fairly soon there will also be an issue tracker.
No stable release available yet.
