  1. The field names themselves are retrieved from GoogleMaps and may change.
  2. The ‘coordinates’ field string value is built by concatenating the latitude and longitude, using the list separator of the current Window’s culture (the above example would display 51,5081024;-0,1399735 on a French PC by default).
  3. The fields above are usually displayed in this order but this is not guaranteed.
  4. This is not an exhaustive list. Other fields may appear according to the information available about a place.
  5. When new fields appear, they are usually added at the end but this is not guaranteed.
