Geospatial Search

Level 6

Hi,

Does AEM have any component that provides geospatial search?

Let's say I'd like to find the nearest stores near the user address, is there something OOTB on AEM?

Thanks

To achieve this functionality - you need to build a custom AEM component using APIs like ones offered by Google:

Here is a community article that talks about implementing 3rd party mapping APIs in AEM:

For geocoding, you would need to use google maps like service, but for performing geospatial search you can use Solr.
