  2. jQuery(document).ready(function(){
  3. var jsapiKey = "YOUR API KEY";
  4. var address = "YOUR+ADDRESS";
  5. jQuery.getJSON(""+address+"&key="+jsapiKey+"&sensor=true&output=json&callback=?",
  6. function(data, textStatus){
  7. console.log("Latitude: "+data.Placemark[0].Point.coordinates[1]);
  8. console.log("Longitude: "+data.Placemark[0].Point.coordinates[0]);
  9. });
  10. });
