Setting Latitude and Longitude

Bringing latitude and longitude values into AquaCUE lets you see locations via the Monitor page Consumption Graph map view. Providing more exact latitude and longitude values let you pinpoint each service point on the map.

Recent system improvements changed the way AquaCUE handles Location and Service Point Latitude and Longitude values.

Four fields in the Data Exchange Specification let you capture geo-coordinates, e.g. Latitude and Longitude values. Those fields are: Location_Latitude, Location_Longitude, Service_Point_Latitude and Service_Point_Longitude.

Previously, it was recommended that you provide both Location and Service Point coordinates. In response to customer feedback, that process has been revised. Now Location and Service Point Latitude and Longitude perform the same function.

As a result, AquaCUE does the following when you:

  • Do not provide any coordinates: AquaCUE uses the Location address to get the coordinates from Google maps for both the Location and Service Point Latitude and Longitude.
  • Provide Location coordinates but do not provide Service Point coordinates: AquaCUE uses the Location Latitude and Longitude values as the Location and Service Point Latitude and Longitude values.
  • Provide Service_Point coordinates but do not provide Location geo-coordinates: AquaCUE uses the Service Point Latitude and Longitude values as the Location and Service Point Latitude and Longitude.
  • Provide Location coordinates and Service Point coordinates: AquaCUE uses the Service Point Latitude and Longitude values for both Location and Service Point, regardless of whether the Location values are different from the Service Point values.

In addition, when the Data Exchange validation process detects both Location and Service Point Latitude and Longitude values, a warning gets triggered to notify you that Service Point coordinates take priority over Location coordinates.
