Configuring the Placefinder Feature



The new Placefinder function can search using familiar place names instead of only searching by selecting a bounding box on a map.  Voyager offers an online gazetteer of 13 million placenames for searching by a location. Voyager administrators can also create their own gazetteer to provide a search experience that is customized to meet their users' needs. 

The Placefinder is enabled by default and the Home page will show Within and Intersects in the Where is it located? drop-down menu, shown below:

Enabling the Placefinder

To enable or disable the Placefinder:

  1. Go to Manage Voyager > Settings > Appearance > Navigo UI
  2. Click Show Placefinder Query Box


Configuring the Placefinder

To Configure the Placefinder:

  1. Go to Manage Voyager > Settings > Placefinder 
  2. You can edit the Placefinder configuration in the dialog that appears:

The Placefinder function cycles through the list, in order of appearance, to try and find matches. The threshold value is used to normalize scoring across different Placefinders with different scoring systems. The default threshold values are Voyager best practices and updating these values should be reserved for advanced administrators.

Note that the Esri Geocoding function will not be available if you do not have an internet connection.
