Please note: This functionality uses the Google Maps API which will make a "best guess" for what the GPS coordinates should be. As you are aware this can sometimes be inaccurate depending on the location and address details provided. This tool is meant to get you started using the mapping but some verification should be carried out by going to the "map" tab.
