The Geo Point Field has two number fields for adding longitude and latitude values. Applications like Google Maps use this kind of Geo-Information of a location. In Picturepark you can only use Geo Point values in Query Filters.
Geo Point Overview
The behavior is similar to a single fieldset.
Geo points are not accessible from the search.
The Geo Point consists of two fields:
The underlying schema in which groups the two number fields is a system schema of the Content Platform called GpsCoordinate.
Usage in layers
Entering the details on the content after applying the layer that has the relevant Geo Point field created:

Picturepark Setup Example
Layer: Corporate Information (ID: CorporateInformation)
Advanced search for the field or the field value
Use in Display Pattern
Use in the business rule as path & field id
Returned field value
Geo Point Field Settings
The setting "name" is available for various things in Picturepark e.g. fields, schemas, business rules. This value defines what appears in the Picturepark interface. You can change the name at any time, and translate it into any configured metadata language. If you would like to add a translation for the name, just press Add.
The field id is the ID of your field, which is used to link to this field. The field id is always lowercase. The id of the field is set on the creation of a new field, using camel casing. You need the field id for the configuration of filters or display pattern.
The ID is automatically created from the name you insert:
You can open the Display Pattern Editor to see the JSON of a Content Item.
The field setting "required" determines whether an editor must provide a field value before being able to save the Content Item. If a field is required and the user has not provided a value or has deleted an existing value, Picturepark does not permit saving the item. This value can be changed at any time. You cannot set a field required on a Layer that has XMP mappings defined for any field.
Attention: even if the field itself is not required when adding Geo Points, both values for longitude and latitude are required.
Include in filters
The field setting “Include in filters” allows the field to be added as a filter for content (see Channels Configuration) and the field values to be edited in the Batch Editor (indexed fields). Picturepark checks this setting against the allowed number of Search-indexed fields in your subscription plan. While it may be tempting to include all fields in filters and simple search also boosting them, you may revisit this idea based on your subscription plan limit, and by testing your common search scenarios - too much values will not automatically result in better search results.
Geo Points work in channel filters, but you should show them as regions or areas. Users may probably find individual Geo Points in filters not helpful at all.
