PPO allows users to enter two coordinates (one for latitude and one for longitude) and then follow a calculated link to the defined location in Google Maps.
Follow these steps to set this up:
Step 1: Create two text fields
The first step is to add two manual text fields, one for latitude and one for longitude:
For details on how to set up data fields, see the following knowledge base article.
Step 2: Create a calculated URL field
The next step is to create the field that will house the link to Google Maps. This needs to be a calculated field, with the following formula:
Once users have entered the latitude and longitude fields, they will be able to click on the Google Maps link and be taken directly to the defined position:
For the above formula to work, the GPS coordinates need to be entered in the following format (decimal degrees):
GPS latitude (south / north): -25.7388900
GPS longitude (east / west): 28.1889600
No other format of GPS coordinates is supported when using this calculation.
