Drupal views - CiviCRM Contact Distance Search

MillerTech released this Drupal module back in 2015 but have recently updated with new features (map and use your location) and to make it more configurable.

This module offers a fully configurable/extendable Drupal view that provides the functionality to search from a postcode and a distance.

Use case scenario – Find schools from my postcode within a 5 mile radius.

With the example above you would have schools as contacts in your CiviCRM database with a primary address and both the latitude and longitude fields should be populated.

The Drupal view that’s shipped with this module can be configured to filter on a particular contact subtype i.e. schools.

Search results will provide you with schools within a 5 mile radius of the entered postcode along with distance.

Distance is calculated by road (or as the road winds or as the crow walks etc.) and NOT as the crow flies.

New features includes an option to display a map –

And also an option for your device to use your location which will populate the postcode field (works best with mobile devices for accuracy) –
