What...? It's a directory?

Yes. Each location has a dedicated page. Combine this with the ability to assign locations to multiple categories and configure different location types and FocalPoint is not just a great mapping extension - it's an awesome map based directory.

Multi Categorisation

Multi-categorisation

Some locations just can’t be pigeon holed. Like the local YMCA. They have a swimming pool, gym, skate bowl, creche and cafe. So, do you define it as a Sporting Venue, Aquatic Centre, Place to Eat or Childcare? How about all of the above? No problem.

Multi Categorisation

Dedicated location page

Each location can optionally be represented with it's own page routed via a fully search engine friendly (SEF) URL containing the map name and location name. Further more, you get to define the fields that make up the content for each location type.

Feature summary for the FocalPoint mapping extension for Joomla!*

 

More than just a mapping extension

Create advanced directories with custom legends, pins, infoboxes and hundreds of locations. Define the content for each location using CCK functionality. And, give your users the ability to search and filter using familiar UI elements.

Integrated map search and filters

Enter a location or postal code and FocalPoint will zoom in and display locations within the radius you define.

Not all locations are the same

Want to add dining options to your restaurant listings? ...or an email address to your accommodation pins? No probs. Using CCK functionality you define the fields for each location type.

Fully customisable

Everything you see on a map is configurable. Want to enable mouse zooming or use satellite view? No problem. There’s options for that in the global configuration and individually for each map. Don’t want search? There’s a checkbox for that. Want to change the search radius or use satellite view? There’s fields for that. Want a different pin? We’ve included over 100.

Build your own templates

If you know a bit of PHP and HTML you can build your own templates using Joomla’s override system. Any custom fields you create are available for layout within your template. It's as easy as this

echo $this->renderCustomField(‘your_custom_field’, true);

Street View

Just check the box and street view is available to your users right in your website.

Multi-categorisation

Some locations just can’t be pigeon holed. Like the local YMCA. They have a swimming pool, gym, skate bowl, creche and cafe. So, do you define it as a Sporting Venue, Aquatic Centre, Place to Eat or Childcare? How about all of the above? No problem.

Focus on usability

To tell you a short story… we started building FocalPoint early 2013 on Joomla 2.5 with a roadmap based on the front end functionality. Features were being added and tested and things were powering along. But, the admin felt, well, a little bloated. We made the decision late 2013 to migrate all our work to Joomla3.x and completely redesigned the backend workflow. We narrowed the admin editing screens down to just 4 views.

Maps on any device

FocalPoint is fully responsive. Your maps will adapt to any screen size - even changes to orientation after it loads.

Magically adapts to your template

The FocalPoint stylesheets don’t contain any font, size, line height or color declarations whatsoever. All paragraph, heading and link styles will be inherited from your template. In addition, all FocalPoint style declarations are prefixed with “#focalpoint” so styles will only apply to the FocalPoint extension.

Just show me the info

Some of your users are pointers and clickers. Others are scrollers and flickers. Enable the list view and give the flickers the ability to scroll through your location list. They can even search and filter the list using the same controls as the map view.

* FocalPoint has been developed for Joomla!3.x. Currently there is no support for Joomla!2.5.x
