Support » Plugin: Geo Mashup » Posts or taxonomies? Which is preferred?

  • Resolved jjci


    The GEO Mashup Settings page indicates that GEO-indexing based on taxonomies may affect performance relative to indexing on posts.

    If several posts share a single geo-address (i.e. location) is it preferred to:

    1. GEO-index the address fields in each post?, or
    2. Assign the posts to a single taxonomy term and then GEO-index only the term (after extending the taxonomy to include an address field)?

    Any feedback would be appreciated?

    Geo Mashup only handles location for posts, users, and comments. So locating terms isn’t really a choice. The performance cost of including taxonomies enables filtering of located posts by term, but not mapping terms themselves.

    Thanks for the feedback.
