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 3.8+. See version map for details.

Note that since CakePHP 3.x upgrade it uses the willdurand/geocoder library and therefore now 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.

Also new:

  • MySQL support
  • PostgreSQL support

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.

Branching strategy

The master branch is the currently active and maintained one and works with the current 3.x stable version. Please see the original Tools plugin if you need the Geo tools for CakePHP 2.x versions.


  • Write own Geocoder provider to leverage all of MapsGoogle data that is being returned.
