Geocoding an address Google Maps

  1. Ad
  2. Address:
  3. Create a button input for the user to click to geocode the address.
  4. Declare a variable outside of the initialize function so that it is available in any javascript code, this will store the geocode class object. var geocoder;
  5. Set the geocoder variable equal to an instance of the Google Maps geocoder class as new Google Maps Geocoder inside the initialize function. geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder;
  6. It will not have any values passed to it. function codeAddress { }
  7. Make sure that the first line of the function uses getElementById to get the address from the text box and place it into a variable we'll call sAddress. var sAddress = document.getElementById(" inputTextAddress").value;
  8. Call the geocode method of the geocoder object, this will take two passed-in parameters. The first is the GeocoderRequest, this says what kind of request is being made and what the request value is. The second is the callback function that will be used to process the results. geocoder.geocode( { 'address': sAddress}, function(results, status) { });
  9. The callback function should first check the status value of the callback function. Use an IF statement to test the result, check to see if the status equal google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK. Also add an ELSE clause to the IF statement as well. if (status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK) { } else{ }
  10. 10

    If the status equals OK, call the setCenter method of the map object variable. You will pass this method to get the result's first geometry location. map.setCenter(results[0].geometry.location);
  11. 11

    Next, use the same result geometry location to add a map marker to the map object variable. Create a new variable – we'll call it oMarker – it will be created as a new google.maps.Marker. The new method takes two parameters, the first is the map object that you're adding the marker to, and the second is the position to place the marker, which is again the first results geometry location. var marker = new google.maps.Marker({ map: map, position: results[0].geometry.location });
  12. 12

    Finally we're going to add an alert message to the ELSE to let the user know that the Geocode didn't work like it should have. You can use the status to give a bit more information rather than just saying that it didn't work. alert("Geocode was not successful for the following reason: " + status);
  13. 13

    You can now give it a go! Type in an address, or simply a city and state, or even something as simple as a state name! You'll see the map move to the new location and add a marker to the map!

Morning-I'm trying to plot a list of addresses on a map using yahoo's service for that. Problem is, the data requires it being in a specific form according to an excel template they've provided as an example.
Now i'd like to know ;
1. General advice on the proccess
2. A way for excel to 'intelligently' break up data into corresponding cells
The problem is my data looks like this:
