This blog will teach you how to obtain a user’s approximate coordinates and mark them on a GoogleMapReact Map.

Step Overview:

  • Obtain a Google API Key.
  • Obtain the user’s coordinates. This blog will show you two different ways of achieving this. Option 1 is using built-in Google Chrome geolocation and option 2 is utilizing Google’s Geocoding API (for browsers that may not support the first approach or users who elect not to process their location through the browser.)
  • Add the Geocoding API to you project’s list of APIs. This API will allow you to obtain user coordinates by converting a an address…

This tutorial will teach you how to create a dynamic HTML table through the use of Javascript and Document Object Model (DOM) manipulation. The number of table rows and cell content will vary depending on your data.
