Setting ACF Google Map from address

  • Hi everybody,

    I’m trying to fetch some post from an external resource which proved me an address/country and I was trying to import them as a post into WP, using one location ACF filed as a Google Map. I’m seeing that the data that this object save is something like:
    a:3:{s:7:"address";s:42:"Poland";s:3:"lat";s:11:"51.919438";s:3:"lng";s:18:"19.145136";}

    And I was thinking how to get y Country field and transform it to coordinates, thought google maps API, but I’m getting a different data from this below url:
    https://maps.google.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address=Poland&key=YOUR_API`

    {
       "results" : [
          {
             "address_components" : [
                {
                   "long_name" : "Poland",
                   "short_name" : "PL",
                   "types" : [ "country", "political" ]
                }
             ],
             "formatted_address" : "Poland",
             "geometry" : {
                "bounds" : {
                   "northeast" : {
                      "lat" : 54.9054761,
                      "lng" : 24.1458932
                   },
                   "southwest" : {
                      "lat" : 49.0020252,
                      "lng" : 14.1228641
                   }
                },
                "location" : {
                   "lat" : 51.919438,
                   "lng" : 19.145136
                },
                "location_type" : "APPROXIMATE",
                "viewport" : {
                   "northeast" : {
                      "lat" : 54.9054761,
                      "lng" : 24.1458932
                   },
                   "southwest" : {
                      "lat" : 49.0020252,
                      "lng" : 14.1228641
                   }
                }
             },
             "place_id" : "ChIJuwtkpGSZAEcR6lXMScpzdQk",
             "types" : [ "country", "political" ]
          }
       ],
       "status" : "OK"
    }

    There is no way to parse it (As far as I know) to the other data that acf google maps save, so I was wondering if anyone knows how to set those google map objects from the ACF just from an address (e.g. Poland).

    Thanks in advance
