I'm attempting to capture the exact lat/long from a place displayed on google maps. It displays in the URL on the address bar, but I cant figure out how to capture that while scraping. Does anyone have any ideas?
I'll add one thing I tried, but couldnt get to work....
When viewing a place on google maps you can click "share". See URL for example.
When you click "share", a popup window displays. If you click "embed a map" tab, it shows html that you can copy. The lat/long I need is also in the html. However, for some reason I cant get that to scrape. I've tried popup links, and it opens the popup, but cant get the tool to select the embed tab, and then capture the html. The text selector doesnt work for that element for some reason. I've also tried element attribute, but no luck.
