A CakePHP plugin to

  • geocode locations/ips and save the information (lat/lng) along with the records
  • reverse geocode data
  • querying geocoded data by distance (using custom finder)
  • display (Google) maps (dynamic and static)

This branch is for CakePHP 4.0+. See version map for details.

Note that it uses the willdurand/geocoder library and therefore supports

  • 12+ address-based Geocoder providers
  • 10+ IP-based Geocoder providers

Most of them also support reverse geocoding. And of course you can write your own providers on top.


  • MySQL support
  • PostgreSQL support
  • SQLite support (for easy local testing)

And also:

  • GeocodedAddresses Table class for caching of API requests to prevent rate limits and speed up lookups.


See Sandbox examples for live demos of the GoogleMaps helper and the Geocoder behavior.
