Geocoder is a configurable server-side geocoder that extends the Google Maps for ExpressionEngine API.

Geocoder is a configurable server-side geocoder that extends the Google Maps for Expression API. With Geocoder installed, you can setup any number of channels and fields to geocoder addresses when entries are posted with the control panel, Safecracker, and the channel entries API.


Geocoder is an official expansion pack to Google Maps for ExpressionEngine, which extends the Google Maps for ExpressionEngine API, and therefore a valid license for each is required. Geocoder will not work if Google Maps for ExpressionEngine is not installed.


Channel Entries

Geocoder works when an entry is created or modified in the control panel, Safecracker, or the Channel Entries API. Define the desired channel and channel fields that store the address components, and the add-on does the rest.

Google Maps for ExpressionEngine

Geocoder extends the powerfull Google Maps for ExpressionEngine to create a solid and well-constructed geocoder. The fact it extends this widely used and well-tested codebase is alone enough reason to use it.

Robust Caching

Since Geocoder extends the Google Maps for ExpressionEngine API, the entire cache is inherently used. Meaning, any response created by the two add-ons is shared and reused globally to prevent any unnecessary requests to the API, which helps ensure you don’t exceed your daily quota.

Server Side

A server-side approach is used to provide a seemless user experience by not requiring JavaScript at any time. The end result is a page loads fast and universally reliable across all browsers.

Quick & Simple

A simple and straightforward approach makes setup easy and without any learning curv. Install the add-on, and configure the Geocoder for the desired channels within minutes.

Does exactly what it’s supposed to do with minimal setup and no trouble! 04.01.13

Solid add-on from Objective HTML. Previously you had to tinker with scripts in the “Plugins” folder of Google Maps for ExpressionEngine to populate Geocoded fields on form submission. This streamlines that process. As always, support is freakishly fast and super helpful. Well done.
