    This schema has changed again (23rd October 2018). See Kushagr's answer for the latest.

    This for a map with the marker (via aaronm's comment):,18.388672

    For an older example (no marker on this one):,18.388672,8z

    The oldest format:,18.388672&spn=65.61535,79.013672

    The best way is to use q parameter so that it displays the map with the point marked. eg.:<lat>,<lng>

    As of today (2014/09/23), I've found that to get marker on exact place (not an approximation) you can use:,17.11514008755796

    Additionally, if you want to specify map center and zoom:,17.11514008755796/@49.46800006494457,17.11514008755796,17z

    If you want to use satellite map type, then append /data=!3m1!1e3,17.11514008755796/@49.46800006494457,17.11514008755796,17z/data=!3m1!1e3

    And If you want terrain view of the map, then append /data=!3m1!4b1,17.11514008755796/@49.46800006494457,17.11514008755796,17z/data=!3m1!4b1

    As of today (23rd October, 2018), Google provided a provision of Universal URL which works quite efficiently on cross-platforms and thus, Google recommends this method.


    Example:,77.2090 (New Delhi, India)

    It´s out of the scope of the question, but I think it might be also interesting to know how to link to a route. The query would look like this:'52.51758801683297,13.397978515625027'/'52.49083837044266,13.369826049804715'

    These are URLs that work:<LAT>,<LNG><LAT>,<LNG>&ll=<LAT>,<LNG>&z=18


    Although (for avid readers) This is the latest from google (August 22 2017):

    Maps URLs
    Maps URLs with map display
    Maps URLs with search action

    From google

    Search: When searching for a specific place, the resulting map puts a pin in the specified location and displays available place details.

    Important: The parameter api=1 identifies the version of Maps URLs this URL is intended for. This parameter is required in every request. The only valid value is 1. If api=1 is NOT present in the URL, all parameters are ignored and the default Google Maps app will launch, either in a browser or the Google Maps mobile app, depending on the platform in use (for example,

    To open the google maps app in android:-


    open app with marker for give location:-


    open google map in ios:-


    open google maps in browser with following parameters:-<lat>,<lng>
    • z is the zoom level (1-21)
    • t is the map type ("m" map, "k" satellite, "h" hybrid, "p" terrain, "e" GoogleEarth)
    • q is the search query

  • Translate

    Using the query parameter won't work, Google will try to approximate the location.

    The location I want :,6.37761393942265

    The approximate location (west of the actual location) :,6.37761393942265

    say easily,lng format

    sample url:,48.227034

    This works too:<lat>,<lon>,<zoom>z


    With pointer:<lat>,<lon>/@<lat>,<lon>,<zoom>z


  • Translate

    Open the following url with the latitude and longitude and zoom level.,88.32&z=8

  • Translate

    Find your location in the Google Earth program, and click the icon "View in Google Maps". The URL bar in your browser will show the URL you need.

  • Translate

    To get your current location as start point you need to use this URL:<latitude>,<longitude>

    You can fill up the destination parameter with the address, name or latitude and longitude values.
