I am using services module to post nodes using rest/json. The nodes also contain images and location. So far I can upload the image and save the node, but the location is not saved. I receive no errors in logs.

Any ideas? Is there something I have to add,maybe permissions, in order to be saved?

This is the json that creates the article but doens not save the location.

    "title": "some title",
    "type": "article",
    "language": "el",
    "body" : {
          "und": [
                  "value": "some text"
              } ]
    "field_tags": { "und": "9" },
    "field_image": {
            "fid": "1364"

                  "name":"TEST LOCATION",

How are you storing the location? Node location? Location CCK field?
take a look at:


If you are using a CCK location field you should disable node location module.

  • Or if you aren't you could switch to a location field.

As a last option you could put latitude and longitude in their own text fields (like field_latitude and field_longitude) since gmaps module can take lat and lng from text fields.

you can use CCK location which allows you a geolocation field, it comes with location module:


  • I use drupal 7 and when I enabled the location/gmap module I see a default 'locations' field in the node. I also tried to create a new 'field_location' but no luck so far. The links that you sent is about drupal 6.

  • Yep, but I found myself with the same problem in D7. If you want so use gmap and need a location field you can try: Location CCK which allows you to use a geolocation field and select this field as a coordinates source when you create a gmap view. Apr 27, 2016 at 9:38
  • There was some progress. I disabled 'node locations' and I posted to the new field_location the longtitude and latitude. But in table 'location' i see that source is 0 and the longtitude and latitude are both 0.000000.

  • Make sure you pass the values in the right format with decimals after a dot Apr 27, 2016 at 12:58
  • I sent the following but still i get 0.00000... "field_location":{ "und":[ { "country":"gr", "latitude":"55.7046601", "longitude":"13.7046601", "name":"TEST LOCATION", "city":"Tripoli" } ] }
