I’m having some issues with the ACF Google Map field.
My first question is what is the database table ‘acf_google_map_search_geodata’ that is created actually used for? I’ve created several posts (custom post type ‘school’) and all data is saved in to the postmeta table, so what is the ‘acf_google_map_search_geodata’ for?
My end goal is to create some kind of query that displays the 3/4 nearest schools to the current school by lat/lng, which should be possible as all this data is available for each post.
The solution here seemed encouraging, but the last ‘working’ example was from 2018 and I can’t make this work.
Is Google Map Field (Pro) another plugin? ACF does not create any extra tables for storing data. If this table is created in relation to an ACF field then something other and ACF is doing it. If this is the case then your question should be submitted to the developer of that plugin.
