Map not showing your School location correctly?
In some cases Google does not show the school accurately. If this happens for your school then you will need to get the exact latitude and longitude for your school. To do this use a website such as itouchmap.com, here it will ask for your address or simply your postcode. Once you have entered your address the map on the screen should then show the address location. If however, the marker is in the incorrect place on the map, simply click on the red marker and drag it to the correct position on the map showing your correct location. When your correct positon is showing, copy the latitude and longitude numbers and replace the latitude and longitude numbers in the HTML code you pasted into your text earlier. See Sample Below:
Replace the text in green with the new latitude and longitude and put this into your website using step 5 above.
