How can I automatically generate lat/long coordinates from a custom field? I need it for my website. I'm using CRED so the people can add projects and add an address. I would like to display the project on the google map but I can't ask the users to search for lat/long coordinates.

Maybe 5 years ago it would work, but now everything is automated , responsive and modern with nice user experience. I have to find some solution, otherwise the lack of this feature will ruin my project 🙁

Kind regards,


Hi Michael,

It is possible not possible with toolset, but you can try Google map API to automatically generate lat/long coordinates from a custom field.
For example, you are using custom field "address" to store a string of address, like "USA, xx city, xxx street, #123", then you can use google API to get its lat/long coordinates.
With wordpress action "save_post", add codes in your theme/functions.php:

//* Function to retrieve & store latitude and longitude of an address field using Google Maps api
function geocode_address($post_id)
    $custom_fields = get_post_meta($post_id, 'wpcf-address', true);
        $resp = wp_remote_get( "<em><u>hidden link</u></em>".urlencode($custom_fields["wpcf-map-marker-address"][0])."&sensor=false" );
        if ( 200 == $resp['response']['code'] ) {
            $body = $resp['body'];
            $data = json_decode($body);
                $latitude = $data->results[0]->geometry->location->lat;
                $longitude = $data->results[0]->geometry->location->lng;
                update_post_meta($post_id, "wpcf-latitude", $latitude);
                update_post_meta($post_id, "wpcf-longitude", $longitude);
add_action('save_post', 'geocode_address');

Hi Luoy,
thank you for your help, is it possible to create a new field that will be generated from few another fields, I mean an address field that will be created from following fields:
- country
- city
- street
- postal code

I understand I would need to create an additional hidden address field and then pass the values from above 4 fields?

You can create custom fields on-fly by using Word Press API. Please see for a reference.

However, you might want to create such fields when your CRED form is posted. For this you may look into CRED API at Here you can find several actions to hook up with required event.

Please let me know if I can help you with anything related.
