Is there a way to standardize locations in text entry component?

For my app I need to ask users for their city and state but I don’t want there to be multiple versions of the same places (ei someone types in ‘Los Angeles’, someone else ‘LA’, someone else ‘L.A.’, etc). This ruins searchability and filtering.

How can I standardize text entries? I don’t think a choice component would work on the city name level as their are far too many possibilities…

I also noticed that on most glide templates I’ve looked at they avoid asking for addresses. Maybe this is why?

Does anyone know how to achieve this?

I really appreciate it!


It might be overkill, but I wonder if you do something like:

First step: Address to coordinates
Second step: Coordinates to address

Would it follow the same format? I guess yes.
