Custom developments for WordPress webmasters

Geographic data widgets

TopCode can write custom widgets to use your geographic data. For example, you may have a list of schools, libraries, parks or recycling facilities.

Widget features

  • "Find my nearest..." functionality
  • Your geographic data is stored in a directory
  • Points may be defined by postcode, latitude and longitude or OS grid reference
  • If needed, the user's postcode can be obtained from the user list for registered users, or requested on the fly
  • The widget is written to query and present the data as required
  • Points can be displayed on an embedded Google map

If required, TopCode can upload your spreadsheet data to a directory

Geographic widgets can achieve only modest functionality and will not rival fully-fledged GIS systems.

Plugins are developed to the customer's requirements, setup and styling. Installation is by TopCode's developer and this requires temporary access for TopCode to parts of your cms. Plugins are installed through the cms and do not alter the cms source code.

After installation, the webmaster uses normal WordPress procedures to configure the plugin using settings.


Requirements vary between customers and systems, so charges are by quotation. Charges include installation and maintenance for 1 year. TopCode is not registered for VAT.

Your licence to use any TopCode code lasts indefinitely. You may modify the code for your own use, but you may not pass it on to third parties.
