Python to Fetch Latitude and Longitude of Your Website with Full Source Code

Geocoding Script

  • This script takes an address and return its latitude and longitude.This process is called geocoding
  • I have used the locationiq website’s geocoding api inorder to solve this problem.
  • To be able to use this script you have to create a free account at locationiq and obtain your private token.

Remember, don’t share your private token with anyone.


  • certifi==2020.6.20
  • chardet==3.0.4
  • idna==2.10
  • requests==2.24.0
  • urllib3==1.26.5

Source Code:

import requests # Base Url for geocoding url = "" address = input("Input the address: ") #Your unique private_token should replace value of the private_token variable. #To know how to obtain a unique private_token please refer the README file for this script. private_token = "Your_private_token" data = { 'key': private_token, 'q': address, 'format': 'json' } response = requests.get(url, params=data) latitude = response.json()[0]['lat'] longitude = response.json()[0]['lon'] print(f"The latitude of the given address is: {latitude}") print(f"The longitude of the given address is: {longitude}") print("Thanks for using this script")
Code language: PHP (php)
