Add search by GPS coordinates [Feature Request]

Please add the ability to search the map on this page by GPS coordinates:


It’s currently not possible for someone to type a GPS coordinate into the search bar on the map embedded on the main page of the Open Cell ID

Steps to reproduce

  1. Go to
  2. In the search bar, type-in “38.8977, -77.0365”
  3. After some seconds, the search query results in the following response:
No results were found

The same happens with other GPS coordinates formats, such as:

  1. 38.8977, -77.0365
  2. 38° 53' 51.72" N, 77° 2' 11.4" W
  3. 18S 323394 4307396


Searching by GPS coordinates (in any format) should bring you to that location on the map.

In fact, it should first check the format to make sure it’s a GPS format before even attempting to query third party location providers, as it should be much faster to find than an additional network query.
