Hello,

I have created a Form & Content Type with following fields:

  • street
  • city
  • zipcode
  • country
  • longitude
  • latitude
  • geolocation (address to coordinates)



If I save the content type, the latitude and longitude data are stored in the database.

Now I use the the seblod importer with the following csv fields:

  • street
  • zipcode
  • city
  • ...

The import works fine. But the latitude and longitude data are not stored in the database.

Only if I save the content in the backend again, the latitude and longitude data are stored in the database.

Is there a workaround, that I get the geo data during the import?

Hi morhinio,

the impprter don't take care of what you are importing.

If your CSV file is well formated, the content must be imported.

Be sure to have the two columns "longitude" & "latitude" in the CSV file with the good header.


regards.

Hello Lionel,

my problem is not the import. That works fine.

After the import the longitude & latitude data in the database are: 0.00000000

The longitude & latitude data (address to coordinates) should be generated automatically during the import.

I morhinio,

I understand, but it's not implemented.

Google map geocoding have some limitations : 

Users of the free API:
  • 2,500 requests per 24 hour period.
  • 5 requests per second.

So depending on the number of items.

The only way you have is to calculate coordinates for each points before the import with a ajax script to stay in te limitation of 5 request per seconds.

To geocode more than 2500 points by 24 hours you must use multi google accounts with a differents Api key.

Have a look to the google API


Regards.
