    Schema Latitude and Longitude

    I'm unsure of what to use for lat and long in the schema markup for my clients. For example, the lat/long in the Google embed maps URL is not the same coordinates as the actual pushpin location. I completed a search with the lat/long from the URL and it was slightly NW of my business location. Any ideas how to correctly identity the lat/long to be used in schema markup? Thanks!

    Re: Schema Latitude and Longitude

    We always keep long and lat consistent with the address in Maps. You will want to get the pin to the correct location as well.

    Re: Schema Latitude and Longitude

    Thanks, what I am actually referring to is that in this example of Cilantro's Mexican Bar & Grill, the lat/long in the Google Maps URL is 41.2200366, -96.1418065.

    https://www.google.com/maps/place/Ci...ar+%26+Grill/@41.2200366,-96.1418065,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x8793f3c301d220c3:0x9efb9 93faf0561f7

    When you search this lat/long in Google Maps, it does not take you to this pin. It instead drops a marker due west of the actual pin in a different lat/long than pulled from the URL.

    This is why I raise the question - In your schema markup, should you use the lat/long provided by Google in the Google Maps URL so that your markup is consistent with the URL? or should you use another method of finding your lat/long for your schema markup since Google also seems to think that this lat/long is due west of the actual business?

    Re: Schema Latitude and Longitude

    I answered in the other thread too, but...

    Have you tried GeoSetter? Check it out. It uses G maps.

    "Shows existing geo coordinates, image directions and tracks on embedded Google Maps map"

    Just enter the address, it use G Maps and will give the correct lat and long. Try it out.

    Re: Schema Latitude and Longitude

    Scott is right, that's one solution.

    But with that tool or any other you still need to double check it, by posting the lat/long back into maps to be sure it resolves properly.

    Re: Schema Latitude and Longitude

    The coordinates in the maps url are where the map is centered. Here are two other variants to find the exact coordinates :

    By clicking direction, the coordinates are in the end of the url, but be sure sure that the end destination is the business, not the address and watch for the minuses :

    Code:
    https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Cilantro's+Mexican+Bar+%26+Grill,+14440+F+St,+Omaha,+NE+68137/@41.2200366,-96.1418065,17z/data=!4m12!1m3!3m2!1s0x0000000000000000:0x9efb993faf0561f7!2sCilantro's+Mexican+Bar+%26+Grill!4m7!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x8793f3c301d220c3:0x9efb993faf0561f7!2m2!1d-96.1396178!2d41.2200326
    Result : 41.2200326 ; -96.1396178

    In mapmaker source code :
    Code:
    "lat":41.220032600000003,"lng":-96.139617799999996
    I checked the google places API for this business and the result for latitude/longitude are the same as in direction url.
