These screenshots show shortly how to add an exposed filter for a Geofield to a Search API-powered view:

Required modules:

Search API Location, Search API Location Views

Fields to index (for Geofield "Location"):
Location » LatLong Pair

Exposed filter on "Location » LatLong Pair":
Expose, Expose operator, Geocoder input, Google Geocoder
Leave the rest on the defaults

Result in an example view:
Location filter is shown

Experiencing the same lack of field.
i'm only able to set the label of filter operator if I expose it.

Have you found a fix, workaround or anything comparable for this problem?

Is this possible for the address to use the Google autocomplete form?

I just need to have a field which calculates the distance between the entered zip code and its nearby location. Same as the google map directions.

I am unable to find out the same.

Can someone please help me in this?

Hi Have used the below php code to find the distance between two points:-

function distance($lat1, $lon1, $lat2, $lon2, $unit) {
$theta = $lon1 - $lon2;
$dist = sin(deg2rad($lat1)) * sin(deg2rad($lat2)) + cos(deg2rad($lat1)) * cos(deg2rad($lat2)) * cos(deg2rad($theta));
$dist = acos($dist);
$dist = rad2deg($dist);
$miles = $dist * 60 * 1.1515;
$unit = strtoupper($unit);
if ($unit == "K") {
return ($miles * 1.609344);
} else if ($unit == "N") {
return ($miles * 0.8684);
} else {
return $miles;

We just needs to pass the lat and long of both the points. Gives a pretty accurate results.
