So for a free app I’m playing around with I’ve hit the address based lookup limit of 10. So I’m busily converting my 20 odd entries to coordinates based - as per here.
It’s not accurate though, all coordinates are a little off after I read them from the URL as the docs suggest and add them into my app. There is some kind of translation happening that changes the coordinate a little - rendering it inaccurate.
Here is an example / my process.
- Look up ‘All Day Donuts / 12 Edward St, Brunswick VIC 3056’
- Google URL = link
- Coordinates following the URL details noted in the docs should be -37.7741777,144.959513
Viewing in app…
Go to the second tab (Eating & Drinking) and All Day Donuts should be up the top, I’ve used the
coordinates field for a basic text field and map directly below it. I can see the visual map representation is incorrect and when you click through it is incorrect too.
It’s nearly 1am here so I’m probably missing something supremely obvious… appreciate any thoughts.
