So you want your map to automatically detect the user's position/location and only load the markers around him/her?

radius

In this next demo we'll show you how to do this with Geocode Factory

Markers are loaded near and around your position. A big radius is set by default to ensure that we don't end up without any markers at all. Of course you can also enter a custom radius, or click on the radius icon and drag the radius dynamicaly!

Try it !


Loaded markers : 0

How To Configure

Please note that the user will need to allow the browser to detect his/her location when prompted.

The way to achieve this is the following:

  • In your maps manager select the map of your choice.
  • Then, under the "Radius options" tab simply enter the following information as seen in the image below.

What is most important is to set the following two options both to "yes":

  • "Draw radius circle" 
  • "Markers in user radius"

Note: The markerset type is a SobiPro one but the principal is the same however in the case of Community Builder, JomSocial, Mosets, etc.
