Design templates that include embedded maps use the Google Maps system to display the embedded map.
If you find that a pin is placed incorrectly for a particular address, you can correct the placement of the pin on the map in your project by utilizing the optional latitude and longitude fields in the design template.
Here is an example of a map pin displayed at a location you may want to change. You may prefer to show the map pin at the entrance to the driveway, rather than on top of the building as seen here:
First you want to get the latitude and longitude for the correct (or preferred) pin location:
- Keep the property address entered into your project:
- Find the Latitude and Longitude where you want the pin to show. You may want to use a website like latlong.net to find the values.
- Copy the Latitude field and paste it into the Latitude field in your project. Next, copy the Longitude field and paste it into the Longitude field in your project (be sure to include the leading dash "-" on the latitude when you copy/paste):
Note: You must enter both the latitude and the longitude to successfully reposition the pin on the map.
- Preview your project to see the map pin in the corrected location:
Reminder: After editing a hosted project, you need to re-host the project to send your changes to the hosted copy of the project.
