Support » Plugin: WP Google Maps » View the addresses of a CSV file that are in a radius around a reference address

    Hi,
    I have a CSV file that contains 1500 addresses. I am looking for a plugin that allows to position them on a map based on a reference address entered by the user as well as a radius around this address. For example: display the addresses of the CSV file that are within a radius of 500m around the address “1 rue du truc, 75000 paris”. Is this possible with your plugin and how?
    Eric

    Hi @erisal
    Our pro version allows you to import CSV files into the database. The plugin itself does not read from a CSV file but it can read from an XML file. Therefore, you could either import your CSV file or convert your data to XML format and the plugin will read from that XML file dynamically.

    The store locator feature would then be able to handle the rest of your request.

    Thank you for your reply.
    I don’t understand very well : if I import my CSV file, will all addresses be displayed on the map? if so, what is the difference with an XML file?
    My CSV file contains only addresses and doesn’t contain Latitude and Longitude; should they be added and, if so, how should they be calculated? I hope this doesn’t have to be done manually!

    Hi @erisal,

    Thank you so much for your time on this one.

    Importing a CSV will show the lat/lng within the info window of the marker, or the address if supplied. With regards to automatically geocoding the addresses to find the lat/lng of each location, this can be done automatically on import.

    However you will need to have a Google Maps API key which allows for geocoding to occur. This is free for around 2500 requests per day if I am not mistaken.

    We supply you with an input field for the API key which will then automatically geocode each address and store the relevant lat/lng.

    Creating an XML file would simply be a more advanced (and complicated) version of this as it would need to be developed manually to override the default XML file. However this is not needed if using CSV as the plugin will handle this.

    I hope this helps?

    Thank you for your reply.
    I finally opted for the “5sec Google Maps” plugin which seems to be the only one to offer pin placement on the fly on a map. It works with a short code [map] [/map] and just placing the pins in the middle using the short code [pin] [/pin].

    It gives this: [map][pin]43.124506,-0.658411[/pin] … [pin]12 avenue des champs elysees, 75000 paris[/pin] … [/map]

    Hi @erisal,

    So sorry to hear that WP Google Maps didn’t function as intended for you.

    I am going to add this as a suggestion for future development.

    I would like to mention that we do support creating a map on the fly with a marker on it by using WordPress custom fields.

    More information on this can be found here: https://www.wpgmaps.com/introducing-maps-by-custom-fields/

    I believe we may have misunderstood your initial request, otherwise we would have provided you with this information much sooner.

    Thank you again for your time. Have a great day.

    Hi,
    I appreciate your very professional reaction and I will analyze the document you have communicated to me.

    Hi @erisal,

    Only a pleasure!

    Hi,
    unfortunately, this does not correspond to my need. To be more specific, I’m using Formidable Pro plugin for create forms, I have a search form in which users enter their criteria and each entry of the database that matches the criteria, is displayed on a map. I did not find any other extension that could do that, and yet it’s very handy … Thank you very much for your replies.

    Hi @erisal,

    Thank you so much for your feedback and I am sorry to hear this did not meet your needs.

    We will definitely consider adding something similar to what you have mentioned in the future.

    My apologies once again for the inconvenience caused.

    Your plugin didn’t cause any inconvenience, its functions probably satisfy other needs very well.
    You are responsive, open-minded and concerned about your customers’ satisfaction. So for me one thing is certain, your plugin must be very well coded, it must be stable and it will evolve in the near future. You must have a very grateful clientele. See you soon …

    Hi @erisal,

    Thank you so much for your kind words, that really made my day!

    Once again your time is truly appreciated.

    Have a great day further.

    HI,
    I always use “5sec Google Maps” plugin which seems to be the only one to propose short codes allowing to display a map and to position markers. Does your version 7 plugin have short codes now ?

    Hi @erisal,

    My apologies for the delay in getting back to you, for some reason I did not receive a notification of your last response.

    We do allow you to center the map on a specific lat/lng location. However this will not allow you to add markers using a shortcode.

    Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    Thank you for your reply.

    “MapPress Easy Google Maps” is an another plugin that offers hooks allowing to display markers on the fly on a map. Maybe you’ll offer it in the future …
