Lab location problem


I add a new fab lab, but in “registration form” or in “edit lab details” in Lab Location dont show the map for drag the maker in the map.


Hi Luís, AFAIK the actual coordinates will be derived from what you fill in the address fields of the “edit lab details”. The coordinates then are stored in your fab record (see below) and your lab will appear as a pin on the map (eg go to labs /spain and you find this map) automatically. No dragging anymore. BTW, in your fab’s record latitude and longitude are Null so far. Maybe you should give it another try.

All the best,

Example fab record:

{“id”:2705,“name”:“A Industriosa”,“kind_name”:“fab_lab”,“parent_id”:null,“blurb”:“A Industriosa is a non-profit association that manages and promotes a fab lab in the city of Vigo.”,“description”:“A Industriosa is a space where makers, technological communities and companies have the necessary equipment to carry out their projects.

Very thanks! I will wait :slight_smile:

Have a nice day! :wink:

@osdiaz have you fixed your lab location on the map? this might help you as well.

Sorry, but i cant resolve the coordinates, I edit the lab very times but dont update. :frowning:

42.22801934617915, -8.721786456994758


Hi Luis,

AFAIK you do NOT need to work with coordinates. These will be derived automatically from the address etc you have filled in. See Screenshot.

Please, try again. If it still does not work ask a fab guru nearby or write to

Best regards,

Yes i have the location good, but… :wink:

Thank you!

Good day. I already registered my lab last year, and today, I dont have any response from the referees. And also I cant see my fablab in the map. Can you help us with this? Thank you.

I find myself in a similar situation, I hope soon some expert can help you with the doubt, as well as me.

Hello, the problem still persists, it does not appear on the map.

Thank you
