How to retrieve an address and coordinates from the Google maps field

With 123FormBuilder you can easily retrieve the address and the coordinates of your users with the help of our Google Maps field. Users can use google maps to pinpoint locations and their address and GPS coordinates are auto-filled into a separate address and short text field.

Let’s get started.

In the Form Editor add the following 3 fields:

  • Google Maps field
  • Address field
  • Short text field

Connect your Google Maps API and add your preferred default address. Read Configure Google Maps with your API for more details.

Next, assign the Google Map field to the Short Text and to the Address field.


select all images

The data from the location selected on the map will be automatically sent to the two fields. By default, the map is set as interactive, meaning that users can navigate through the map and also view the map in the satellite mode.
