I have spent quite a bit of time looking into this and I just want to confirm if its just the way i am writing the bubble formulae of it is just not possible the way i am doing it. Essentially i have a list of Co-Ordinates in the database with the Long/Lat saved individually as numbers. I want to place markers on the map based on the exact co-ordinates.
I am able to get this to work for a single marker using the Calculate CoOrd to address formulae. But when i try and show a list of markers i come across a couple of errors. The first being the long/lat field expect a list of number but then the data source expects a list of addresses.
The issue i find with converting the co-ordinates directly to an address is that it loses the precision. The areas where i am placing the pins haven’t been ‘addressed’ the best and the markers end up in the wrong region. I also want the marker to be shown exactly , based upon the list of given longitudes and latitudes as we are trying to show that this is the exact location of the listing.
As a hypothetical example;
Lets say i wanted to drop a pin in Yosemite right in the middle of Plute moutain and Price Peak. Coordinates = 38.051537, -119.544465. As shown below.
plus any other identifying information you may want stored on the data type.
Then in your map you should be able to find a way to load a list of “addresses” ( which is simply a data type you created ) and then you would reference “this address long and lat”
Play around with it like that…One thing that might need to be done is actually have a data field that stores both long and lat together as you would see on google maps when they display that information, the two numbers are separated by commas.
With both numbers in one data type separated by commas the map element might make it easier to utilize them in that formatted structure.
Thanks for getting back to me NIgel and digging this out,
So what i am actually trying to do is show a list of stored co-ordinates as markers on the map. I have the lon/lat stored in the database already and then I am trying to get this to appear on the map accurately. Based of a similar logic to yours above i am able to accurately map out a single/one marker but i am having some difficulties doing this for a list of markers.
You are sort of onto me though, i was entering the coords into a Geographic Places search box as a temporary work around
Still a bit confused/struggling to get the stored lon/lats all appear on the map as i can’t seem to convert them to an address accurately in bulk. Not sure if im missing something here but appreciate any clarification.
