The Apache Solr for TYPO3 CMS extension currently does not support geo search, but it seems to be a good addition for scenarios like store locators or similar.
Components for geo search are:
- Querying Solr
- Indexing of geo coordinates data, index schema modifications
- UI to select a search bounding box / search radius
- Input method to set the visitors own geo position, f.e. GeoIP
- API to use different map services f.e. Google Maps, Open Street Maps, Bing and more
We have released the extension on GitHub:
We thank our sponsors for enabling us to develop this extension.
On GitHub we will further continue the development as a community project. Commercial support can be purchased from us.
