    Separate field for lats and longs from geolocate widget, not mixed with address?

    Asked by Aaardvaark on November 16, 2015 at 01:00 AM



    Our forms use the geolocate widget eg http://www.jotform.com//?formID=41071440903848

    Our data from the forms is input to a database using a semi-automated system, and the admin has just told me that embedding lats and longs with the address makes this very difficult.  It was one of the changes that occurred to the widget (without notice) over the last year or 18 months.


    Is it possible to change the widget so it reports, ideally, one field for latitude and one for longitude, or at least, a field containing just the latitude and longitude, without the address?

    Hi Julian,

    In the widget configuration, you have the option to change the Output Format to just the latitude and longitude:

    Just change it from the dropdown and that should give you correct format:
