Support » Plugin: Map Block for Google Maps » Getting latitude and longitude

    Hi,

    Does the map get the lat and long from Google?

    If so, does it store lat and long per post?

    If not, is there a way for me to programmatically access the address in the map block so that I can go to Google with the address and get lat and long myself?

    Thanks ahead of time…..

    Hi,

    You can use Google’s Geocoding API for that 😊

    Hi,

    I am aware of that 🙂 and do it all the time.

    But I can’t use the API if I can’t get the address out of your block.

    That is why I asked in my original post:

    If not, is there a way for me to programmatically access the address in the map block so that I can go to Google with the address and get lat and long myself?

    So I dont think any of my questions have been answered.

    And when I asked:

    Does the map get the lat and long from Google?

    If so, does it store lat and long per post?

    Those questions have not been answered but I will assume the answer is No.

    Hi,

    No, just the user inputted address is stored and we send that to Google Maps, not coordinates.
