Google Maps setup

BriteCore uses Google Maps, a mapping solution, as a geocoding service.

Note: Google Maps is available with classic BriteCore and BriteSuite.

Geocoding refers to locations in terms of latitude and longitude, which is more accurate than describing a location’s address using street names.

Note: The Google Maps integration works with the SmartyStreets integration.

Setup options

The GoogleMaps integration is hosted in your BriteCore Integrations API at /googlemaps. The provided reference plugin calls the service to provide rich address functionality.

To set up the Google Maps integration, complete one of the following steps:

  • Reach out to your BriteCore representative. 
  • Set it up yourself:
    • Host the HTML plugin publicly.
    • Post the appropriate plugin configuration payload to your /plugins/ endpoint.

APIs

The Google Maps integration has two primary API endpoints: 

  • /geocoding can be leveraged to turn US street addresses into latitude and longitude. 
  • /suggestions can be used to create autocomplete controls, making it easier to input addresses in BriteCore.
