How can I Ask google for gps by giving street adress?

I got a bunch of Adresses and like to retrieve the gps data for the houses.

Adresses are from germany like street, house number, zip code, city.

Thanks a ton!

hi, do you have any example code in processing or p5js that tries to implement this ? you will more likely have to look at the Google Maps API.

No code yet.

What is the usage for the api?

so for instance, this library https://github.com/bmoren/p5.geolocation has methods to get GPS data. Here is an example - https://editor.p5js.org/projects/HkQ8kMdee

It sounds like you’re looking for the Geocoding API:

Geocoding is the process of converting addresses (like a street address) into geographic coordinates (like latitude and longitude), which you can use to place markers on a map, or position the map.

Reverse geocoding is the process of converting geographic coordinates into a human-readable address.
