Google Maps API – Autocomplete Address Search Box with Map Example

In that tutorial, I would like to share with you how to use google autocomplete address search box with maps. we will create a simple example with google places autocomplete places search box and show in the map, we also display latitude and longitude and place using google maps javascript API.

The Place Autocomplete service is a web service that returns place predictions in response to an HTTP request. we simply get lat long and location name according to place autocomplete search box. I just created an HTML file so you can also run in your system easily.
