Text vs Geographic Address


I have separate inputs (Street, State, City, Zip) to create an address for a user, In the database, it’s just an address. I’d like to turn that into a geographic address, that way I can plot a point on the map.

Is it possible to create a geographic address from the text? Or is it better to just use a search box with geographic addresses?


Hey @Boost,

I think in your case it would be easier to just do a search box with the geographic address, from there you can plot it using the map element.

Hope this helped!



Thank you!

No worries! Feel free to mark that as a solution if it was a solution to help future bubblers!


Another choice is to turn the text address into a geographic address to save in the DB
