Hi everyone !

 

I'm doing some tests while using thingspeak (really cool platform 🙂 )

I'm trying to update the location (latatidue and longitude), but when I visualise the json file

{"created_at":"2011-09-07T15:05:57Z",
"elevation":null,
"entry_id":36,
"field1":"33.22",
"field2":"31.73",
"field3":"1.583",
"field4":"1.058",
"field5":"029",
"latitude":"45.13305",
"location":null,
"longitude":"5.469888"}
There is still a parameter named "location=null". What is this parameter made for, and why is it still null?
And last question: Except having the location data in the 3 feeds, what is the use of updating the location? Is there any google map frame on the channel webpage?
Thanks for everything !
Fabien

Location is another optional parameter that you can write a location description, city / state, or postal code up to 255 characters.
