Include a map on your site is a huge improvement of it. It can be powerful for your users to have the site with a map where they can find the entry related to a specific content not matter if we are referring to a Post, a User, Product or a Custom Post Type.

To bring the location power to your user-generated content you will need to learn 2 topics:
- Let the user input the location.
- Show the location already stored on the site.
To let the user input the location into your content we build a custom field and you can find it under the group Geo My WP with the name Address.

Show the location already stored in the site we build a special shortcode where you can get the entries that you want to output and apply some minor customizations to the form. Read more in the next link Geo my WP Shortcode.
