The Address Geocode Attribute add-on for concrete5 allows your site to automatically convert addresses into coordinates or vice-versa.

When installed, it adds a new attribute type called 'Coordinates'. This attribute type accepts latitude, longitude and elevation. There is also a control panel where you can specify:

  • The type of conversion you want to make (geocode or reverse geocode)
  • Which objects you want the conversion to happen on (by default, Page, Composer, File and User objects are supported, but you can configure more)
  • Which events for those objects you want the conversion to happen, such as on_page_add or on_user_update
  • The overwrite policy for the conversion
