Addressfield Autocomplete, Geofield and Geocoder work together

This page describes how you can configure Addressfield Autocomplete module with Address Field, geocode the coordinates to a Geofield and show the point on map.

The Search API Location project, in its current 7.x-2.x branch, offers Search API integration for Geofields or custom location data.

Basic Dealer Locator, User Locator, Store Locator proximity search

The Goal: Five minutes to location based search results

This page will describe how to create a basic Dealer Locator, User Locator, Store Locator, etc with proximity search. The results will be displayed using Views. Your users will be able to search using friendly strings, such as "City, State", "State", "Province", and "Post/Zipcode" and return a result list ordered by proximity/distance.


The result will not show a map, only a simple list of results ordered by proximity.

There is a lot of documentation in the Drupal geolocation community that is focused on creating maps, which can make anyone new to the Drupal geocoding modules confused about where to begin for simple requirements. Fear not, the steps are actually very easy to accomplish, and you will have a 'store locator' running in minutes.
