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

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 !

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