Geolocator Guide

There are two ways of finding the coordinates that are required to display the interactive map on a school's page.

  • Google Maps
  • Add/Edit Locations

Use the guides below for assistance.


Google Maps

Use Google Maps to find the location of the school.

Once you have found the location, use the satellite view to confirm.

(If you used the search to 'home in' on the area it is best now to click the 'X' in the search box)
(This makes it easier to place your pin......see next step)

A single click on the building (or location, if the school has been demolished) will often place the grey & white pin.
If the single click doesn't place the pin then try a slow double click.
A standard quick double click will often zoom the map further.
A little bit of trial & error here!!

Right-click on the pin and then click on the coordinates at the top of the list.

Google Maps tells you that the coordinates have been copied to the clipboard.

Email the coordinates to the Webmaster.....don't forget to say which school it is!!


Add/Edit Locations

Use the Add/Edit Locations page.

Complete the three required fields......your name, email and location name.

Using the map lower down the page, identify the location and use the satellite view to confirm.

Click once on the marker icon and click once again to drop the marker onto the location.

If you make a mistake, click on the "Edit" icon shown, drag the pin to the correct position and then click "Save".

If (for some reason) you want to delete the location pin, the easiest way is click on the dustbin and choose "Clear All".

Click the "Submit" button and the coordinates and any additional information you have added to the form will be sent to the Webmaster.
