SharePoint 2013 introduces a new field type named Geolocation that enables you to annotate SharePoint lists with location information. In columns of type Geolocation, you can enter location information as a pair of latitude and longitude coordinates in decimal degrees or retrieve the coordinates of the user’s current location from the browser if it implements the W3C Geolocation API. In the list, SharePoint 2013 displays the location on a map powered by Bing Maps. Together, the Geolocation field and the Map View enable you to give a spatial context to any information by integrating data from SharePoint into a mapping experience, and let your users engage in new ways in your web and mobile apps and solutions.
