This chapter describes the functionality of the geolocator query in the WebOffice core client. The geolocator query can zoom either to addresses or to coordinates.


The geolocator query can be found in the WebOffice core client in the queries stack with the configured name. Based on the configuration the input can be done in a text field.


Geolocator query with address

WebOffice 10.9 SP1 support entering the address in the format of the geolocator service. The appropriate address will be shown in the search result and in the map. If you have configured a value list with auto completion on the Geolocator Service, you will get suggestions when entering some characters in the search field.

Geolocator query with coordinates

WebOffice 10.9 SP1 supports a range of different coordinate formats. The coordinates will be converted to a default format by WebOffice 10.9 SP1 and sent to the geolocator service.


Enter coordinates in the geolocator query

Enter coordinates in the geolocator query


The following formats are recommended in WebOffice 10.9 SP1, the example shows the coordinates of the airport Lissabon-Portela:


38.775171, -9.135511

38.775171 N, 9.135511 W

N 38.775171, W 9.135511


Furthermore WebOffice 10.9 SP1 supports the following formats, that can be combined in any way (e.g. leaving the blank).


38.775171 -9.135511 (blank between coordinates)

38.775171,-9.135511 (comma between coordinates)

38.775171;-9.135511 (semicolon between coordinates)

38,775171, -9,135511 (comma as separator)

38.775171N,9.135511W (coordinates and cardinal direction without blank)

38.775171N, -9.135511E (negative East value instead of positive West value)

38.775171N, -9.135511O (O for East instead of E)

38.775171n, 9.135511w (lower case for cardinal directions)

9.135511 W, 38.775171 N (reverse notation of longitude - latitude needs the cardinal directions)


Note: Any other options as well as degree values (e.g. 38°46'29.9"N 9°08'08.2) are not supported by WebOffice 10.9 SP1.


Note: Please find more details about the configuration of the geolocator query with WebOffice author standalone in Geolocators.
