Google Geo Location Services Plugin


(James Oliver) #1

I have searched and searched trying to find something that uses the Google API to translate a visitors physical address.

Does anyone know if a plugin of this sort already exists? Or, where I could find a developer to create a plugin?

Hi,

Can you further explain what the Google API is?

Geolocalisation is completely modular in Matomo, so you can write your own code that detects the location from the IP.
See e.g. this plugin:

If you are using server side tracking, you can specify the location via the HTTP api GET parameters:

https://developer.matomo.org/api-reference/tracking-api#other-parameters-require-authentication-via-token_auth

If you want to track the location in the browser, this doesn’t seem to be possible (couldn’t find anything here)

Specifically, I’m talking about using Google geolocation services from the client side.

I have found their locations to be very accurate in pinpointing physical addresses.
