Latitude and Longitude View on Google Maps


I have the latitude and longtitude field and i want to show on google maps using the address field type. What is the format recommended?

currently we have something like this “(33 52 6.93), (-117 47 11.52)”.

Thank you

You can just input the location data from Gogole Maps.

For example:
Source of location from Google: image
Input Address field and Map display:

It would appear that the Address Field supports common format used by Google Maps
(Discover coordinates or search by latitude & longitude - Computer - Google Maps Help)

  • Decimal degrees (DD): 41.40338, 2.17403
  • Degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS): 41°24’12.2"N 2°10’26.5"E
  • Degrees and decimal minutes (DMM): 41 24.2028, 2 10.4418

Looks like you need to convert your original format of:
“(33 52 6.93), (-117 47 11.52)”


to something like:
1) 33°52’06.9"N 117°47’11.5"W

2) 33.868592, -117.786533

If you already have lots of location in your current format. It would seems like you need to do some kind of conversion first for it to work in the address field.
there are batch conversion tool online, such as this:

This helps.
