    I checked your latest form and it seems like you are using the Geolocation widget.

    To edit the location, just click the the widget first, you'll then need to click the "Wizard"/"Wand" icon to open its settings.

    In the widget settings, you can set the default location in the map.


    To add a widget, you can follow this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/252-How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-your-Form. To learn more about the available map widgets that we have, you can check our widgets page here: http://widgets.jotform.com/category/mapping

    None of the map widgets worked. There is no way to put in an address on any of them, just the long/lat, but I don’t even know where to find that. Please get a map widget that’s more user-friendly. Otherwise, I LOVE jotform!

    Thank you.

    If you need to have a fixed location in the Google maps, you'll need to get the long and lat of your address. You can easily get them using this link: http://www.latlong.net/.

    If you are using Google Maps, you can follow the steps below:

    1. First, visit https://maps.google.com. Search for your location where you want to point on a Google map. Click on it, that coordinates (longitude and latitude) would then be displayed.


    2. If you click on the coordinates, will will directly place a marker on it, you can copy the coordinates from here.


    3. Paste the coordinates in your Geolocation widget's "Default location"


    4. You'll then see that that's the default location on the map when the form is loaded.


    Here's a sample form: https://form.jotform.com/53205285734960? based from the changes made above.

    Do let us know if you need further assistance on this.
