Once I have a Google key, HOW do I geocode?

If I have an address stored in different fields (address1, address2, city, state, postal code) and I want to create a geocode in another field, how do I do that?

I am not looking for instructions on how to get a Google Geocode API key. I get that. Nor am I interested in using a plugin (which shouldn’t be needed if it’s a default setting).

I am trying to actually geocode an address in the editor as part of a workflow.

What does having that API key let you actually do in terms of functional geocoding? Why is it any better than just setting up a from-scratch call in the API connector?

If this is in the manual somewhere I apologize, but I can’t find it.

If you know how to set up the google api, that is the hard part.

To utilize it in bubble is pretty straightforward.

You can make use of this…get current geo location

You can also turn coordinates to address

And you can also take the regular text of an address and turn it into a geolocation address. I had a lot of database entries with text for address fields and turned them all into a geolocation address to make use of the functionality.

You can also extract the information from the geolocation address such as city or zip code.

Here are screenshots of how I took the text and turned into geolocation

I have the two repeating groups so that I could see which ones had the geolocation added already and which didn’t…I also set it up so I ran only 100 at a time

Just enter your concatenate text address in your geographic address field “This Thing’s address 1, This Thing’s address 2, This Thing’s zip code, city, This Thing’s country” and the magic will happen behind the scene.
