    Hello Mirrzza,

    Here is the step by step guide for you to use the jotmap api:

    1. Create a form with address question.

    2. Go to URL to get the API and click "Authorize Jotmap" or input the API key and click next:

    3. Select your form from the list and click next

    4. You will be able to get the coordinates and the map of the first 20 submissions.

    The iFrame embed code which you get will display all the map with marker. You can check it in your own map which you have mentioned above:

    Please be noted that our JotMap API will only map the first 20 submission of your form. You can embed this map in any webpage. I have added your map in one of my form, please check it here:

    You should add a free text (HTML) question in your form and add this iFrame code there. Here are the steps:

    1. Load your form in editor.

    2. Add a free text (HTML) question in your form.

    3. Add the map iFrame code in the HTML property of the free text (HTML):

    Hope this helps.

    DO get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Actually, the Free Text (HTML) is now called  Text, and it can be found under Form Tools

    We have since developed a widget that can meet your original request - The GPS Location Widget

    Please try it out and share your experience - Is there anything we can improve on?

    hi Jotform folks. Im a phd student in malta doing some research into learning in a smart city. I really like your form tools for GPS location widget, uploading multimedia choices and so on. Is this still a live (reliable) form/app/service I can use for my project? Sadly I am not funded so would be using free plan. But I will give you full credit for these very useful functions if I can rely on your service - Im only asking as the last thread on this convo is 2 years ago.
