Get Location From Latitude And Longitude - Google Maps API V3
Oct 2, 2011
I am trying to create an application which utilizes the distance finder. I want to be able to calculate the distance between two points. I have managed to (with the aid of a lot of tutorials) be able to calculate the distances between two points.
Now, in the application, there will be times where the user does not supply us with their location to calculate the distance. In this situation, the Latitude and Longitude will be calculated and this location will be shown to the user in the address form instead of with Latitude and Longitude.
What I have on one page is the distance calculator:
And on my other page I've got the latitude and longitude calculator.
I'm currently using some code that takes the latitude and longitude from a Google map and outputs it in a table when the user drags a marker on the map. I previously had it working that the outputted latitude and longitude appeared in an input box but I can no longer get this to work again.
This is the table I output the latitude and longitude to <table class="latlontable" style="float:left"> <tr><td width="100"><b>Latitude</b></td> <td id="lat" name="lat"></td></tr> <tr><td width="100"><b>Longitude</b></td> <td id="lng" name="lng"></td> </tr></table>
I have a google maps application which has an address text box. When we type in the postal address, it gives the corresponding latitude and longitude as a pop up info window on a google map. All i want to do is to be able to get the latitude and longitude info into two text boxes on the html page. I am trying to modify the code but for some reason, I am unable to do it. Here is my code.

My idea is to take pictures with a camera with GPS functionality so all the pictures will be tagged (in the exif) with a latitude and longitude value. The objective is to post these pictures on my site when I'm on tour and dynamically link them to a google map so visitors and myself can see the exact location where the picture was taken.
The following libraries offered by nihilogic: (binaryajax.js and exif.js) [URL] are able to read EXIF data such as latitude and longitude from the picture.
Since I'm trying to work with jquery I also tried the jquery version which does also read exif data. However the jquery version of the script doesn't read latitude and longitude tags.You can find this script here:jquery.exif.js
My question is it possible to find a solution that will allow reading out the longitude and latitude data with the jquery script? Is it possible to tell me how to enable this data in jquery?
Here's a test sample of my site using this script. click on the little globe icon under the first picture to see google maps and EXIF data.
I've found the Harvesine forumla to get the distance between any two points of latitude and longitude on the earth's surface. What I want is a little different - I want that, given a point and a distance, to get the latitude and longitude of a second point. I'm having trouble reversing the forumla. The current formula:
I'm new to this forum and JS. I simply want to be able to use the Google Maps API v3 to allow a location value entered in my app (by the user) to show that location via Google maps.The code below accomplishes this via an onClick event. How to accomplish the same WITHOUT an onClick? To be clear, it appears I need to be able to perform the geocode lookup to get the long/lat coordinates and then apply them. That all needs to occur on page load.
Hopefully a really quick question. I'm a JS novice, and am looking for a way to output the coordinates of a Google maps marker into the value of two text fields, one for latitude and one for longitude.The code below is a simple location search which returns a result with a draggable marker. Currently, the coordinates in both text fields update when the location search is performed, but not when the marker is dragged to a new location afterwards.
I'm not sure where I have translated this incorrectly. I have one google map embedded on my page which works fine. But I wanted to add a second one. I thought the easiest way to do this would be to have a second page which is called later on with all the details on it for the second map. However although I think (this I presume is where I went wrong) I have replicated the instructions correctly the place holder for the second map just remains blank.
This is the code for my called page with the instructions for the second map:
And this is the script of the main page, just in case I would be better off keeping them both in one place.
I've cut out the script that doesn't relate to this so I hope I haven't missed anything important.
Been looking at google maps, but i am not sure if this is possible, what do you think?
1) Fill database with places (refering to lat + long values) + put markers on google map. 2) Users can then browse the map, click on a marker to select the location which referes to a place in a database.
I know I can add markers to a map. Not sure if it is possible for a user to click one, which then fills a box in a form though.
We got a google maps with a bunch of pins. Each pin is setup to use our blue custom icon image. I'm trying to make it so that when you click on a pin, that particular pin changes to a green version of the icon, and all the reset stay blue. If the user clicks another pin, it turns green and the previous goes back to blue.Basicly only the clicked active pin should be green.
I am messing around with Google Maps a little and the fundamental difficulty in building anything useful is extrapolating address information from another website. I would like to be able to use a form like yahoo yellow pages send it a zip code and get back a bunch of, say, banks in that zip code and parse the address out. Some things, very few, actually return data in the XML format, but how do you write a script that send a request to a website and then returns that request as a DOM object. I'll even take HTML and then I'll parse it out myself, but how do you do that.
I know it sounds fundamental, but I'm a real beginner in this, so if you can push me in the right direction I would appreciate it too.
I've seen several websites using a custom image as a map with google maps controls.I'm familiar with how to use the google maps api in general, but I don't know how to use a custom map image that isn't based on the real world, in other words it will be an image of a map from a video game, so general latitude and longitude wont apply.
I have a boss who wants to show 5000 points on a Google map. So far, only a fraction of this being displayed freezes the browser. I've been challenged to make this possible while still in the realm of the browser. Would the flash version of Google maps api be a better bet? Does flash provide a better framework for this kind of heavy usage?
I have the following code to insert a google map of the UK into my page with some markers on it. This is fine except I want to change the icon to a simple flat spot. I'm sure this is easy and I have actually managed this before when there was only one marker on the map. how to do it on this example though.
