How to enable geo stamping on your forms

A geo stamp could be one of the most important fields you can add to your form. 

A geo stamp adds geo location information each time your form is opened, stamping each response with longitude and latitude data depending on the responder's location. 

Most of the data you collect will need some sort of verification or associated information which will corroborate what you have received from your form users. 

The geostamp not only provides a way to query the validity of the supplied information, but allows you to visualize the distribution of your form using the geographic information stamped on your form. 

In order to add a geo stamp on your form, you simply have to use the geo stamp widget as show below: 

1. Drag the Geostamp field onto your form.

    How can the output of this widget be formatted to become a hyperlink on the form submission PDF? ie: click to open coordinates in google maps or other default map app / site.
    The output would be better if it could be formatted also. eg: it provides the output as: "Latitude: xx.xxxxx Longitude -xx.xxxxx" so to cut and paste this into a map search or to add to a map layer takes a few manual steps.
    If it could be formatted to be like (or however I want) eg: "longitude, latitude: xx.xxxxx, -xx.xxxx" then the cut and paste process would be much easier.
