The Location module allows real-world geographic locations to be associated with Drupal nodes, including people, places, and other content. The Location module allows admins to collect addresses, geocode them (translate addresses to lattitude/longitude), and associate locations with Drupal nodes and users. Location data is automatically used to generate GeoRSS within your existing RSS feeds.

#2127933: [META][SPRINT][Location] Documentation sprint

At present, it is the only module that provides the views integration necessary for implementing location-based searches and is designed for the purpose of finding points on a map within a vicinity of a user-supplied location.  If you are interested in the presentation and manipulation of geographic data beyond points (e.g., lines, polygons, etc) I would recommend using the geofield and open layers modules.

Important location search change: For those using the location search sub-module, as of location 6.x-3.2 and 7.x-3.0-alpha1 users must have the "access content" permission and any relevant node access rights to see node based location search results and the "view user profiles" and "view all user locations" permissions to see user based location search results.

If updating from earlier versions and using location search, make sure to check these permissions.

Drupal 8 porting

#2120387: Drupal 8 port for Location module

Drupal 7

The alpha (7.x-3.0-alphaX) is now available and ready for use on production sites.
Porting is complete, but there are still a few minor issues to be resolved.
If you find any bugs please post bug reports in the issue queue (if there isn't already one for the problem).
A beta version will be released soon, once a couple more critical issues are fixed.

Installing fresh on D7 has been tested.  Upgrading from D6 still needs to be tested.  Feel free to test and and post issues for the upgrade path.



Location 7.x-3.x is a direct port of the drupal 6 version (6.x-3.x) and so it still contains the node locations and user locations modules as before, in addition to the location cck module.
As of 7.x-3.0-alpha1 the location cck module is a Drupal core field API field that should work on any entity types.
If you are upgrading from drupal 6 and use the node location, user location or location taxonomy modules you can continue to use them. Otherwise it is recommended you use the location cck module, which in future versions will be called location field and will be the only option.

Known issues

Currently, with 6.x-3.x, you cannot use node locations and cck locations on the same node type.  For more information see INSTALL.txt or the handbook for the module.

If using a 7.x-3.x version please read the important note in the D7 section above.
