longitude and latitude for map

by dennis7 on 12 Feb 2014 12:49 | 2515 Hits | 2 comment(s)

not all positions in the world have streets and/or are mapped by Google.

so currently there is no way at all to show items on the map that do not have an address and are mapped by Google.

so what urgently is needed is a way to directly enter the longitude / latitude coordinates in the map-filed or any other way !



by providing this possibility RS Directory would get usable all over the world ! I'm sure that would be an advantage for you too, since u want to reach as much users as possible.

i checked the code and saw that actually the way the map woks now is -> enter address -> map will geocode it to longitude / latitude anyway and then store it, so this one change would be relatively easy for you to make since it would simply skip the geocoding part and use the entered coordinates directly instead.

@Denis,

Thank you for pointing this out. I have corrected the feedback.
Have you encountered such difficulties as well ?

*"...skip the geocoding part" (not "skill" )
