    pip install django-location-field

  2. Add location_field.apps.DefaultConfig to INSTALLED_APPS your settings.py file

For example, PostGIS:


Basic usage (using Spatial Database)

from django.contrib.gis.db import models
from django.contrib.gis.geos import Point
from location_field.models.spatial import LocationField

class Place(models.Model):
    city = models.CharField(max_length=255)
    location = LocationField(based_fields=['city'], zoom=7, default=Point(1.0, 1.0))

Basic usage (without Spatial Database)

from django.db import models
from location_field.models.plain import PlainLocationField

class Place(models.Model):
    city = models.CharField(max_length=255)
    location = PlainLocationField(based_fields=['city'], zoom=7)
