The store locator search engine allows your users to easily find locations. The search engine is composed of:
- Search by keywords
- Search filters
Search by keywords
The search engine geocodes the user query to find matching GPS coordinates.
These GPS coordinates are used to display nearby locations within a given geographical radius (50 kilometers by default). Locations are then displayed by proximity from the calculated GPS coordinates.
If the user query can not be geocoded, the search engine will proceed a full text search of the user query on the "name" and "city" location attributes in your database.
BRIDGE uses the internet browser geolocation feature to display the nearest locations from the user position, within a given geographical radius.
The user GPS coordinates are given to BRIDGE by the web browser: BRIDGE doesn't directly calculate these coordinates.
The autocomplete allows to quickly suggest relevant search results based on the current user query.
