You can establish the GIS maps functionality in your model in just a few simple steps. Let's take a look at the real-life example and learn how to quickly gather all of the GIS information required. Just as a quick reminder, the information that we'll need is *Model Coordinates & World Coordinates*.

We know where our model is located:

(Moor Place, Finsbury, London, United Kingdom).

### Model Coordinates

Our first step is to pick a model location that we will use for **Model Coordinates.**

To do this, we are going to use the Measurements Card and locate a point on our model.

In this case, it will be the corner of a building as shown in the image below:*X = 83301300**Y = 36342420**Z = 113569*

### World Coordinates

Our next step is to find out what is the Latitude and Longitude of this location.

We can locate the same corner of the building using* Open Street Map* or even *Google Maps*. We will use the information discovered to specify our **World Coordinates** in the GIS Card.

Latitude: *51.51817*

Longitude: *-0.08809*

Here's how we got this information from various online map providers:

*Open Street Map*

*Google Maps*

All that's left to do is to copy & paste the information gathered. Fill in the required fields and click the **Save** button*****

*****Please note that in this instance we had to apply **-** before the Z(mm) value. That's because this model is offset from 0 by 113569, therefore we will need to reflect that transition on the map tiles.

If your Z value is:

- > 0 then add a minus before it (ex. 1500 should be -1500)
- = 0 then use the original number (ex. 0 should be 0)
- < 0 then remove the minus before it (ex. -1500 should be 1500)

To activate the map tiles click on the visibility icon next to it. Here is what the final result looks like.
