This plugin is for Doctrine only. It provides API integration with Google Maps to allow for the automatic fetching of latitude and longitude for a given model. This is configurable for any field/fields on your model.

How It Works

Add the behavior to your model:

  actAs: [Geolocatable]

Geolocatable requires the "fields" argument to work. This takes an array of fields use to determine the latitude/longitude. Provide as many or as few fields as you want, but you must provide at least one:

      fields: [city, state]


The Geolocatable plugin comes with some methods for geolocation:

Object Methods:

  • refreshGeocodes( $url = null ) refreshes the geocodes for the object via the Google Maps API.

Table Methods

  • addDistanceQuery( $query, $latitude, $longitude, $distance = null) adds distance query to a preexisting query.
    field "distance" on each object represents the distance away from the passed latitude and longitude.
    If $distance is not null, results are limited to that distance from the given geocodes.
