How to Make a QR Code for Location (GPS) Sharing

make-qr-codes-for-location

Sometimes, when you plan for events, friends may have problems in locating the venues. Or, it can also be an issue with customers locating your business. To overcome these kinds of problems, you can create a QR code using a location QR code generator for any locations you wish to share with friends. Once they use the code, they can locate and see where you want them to be.

A QR code is a unique generated set of characters that enables you to share your Wi-Fi or location. You can also share maps or anything else with your friends with ease. “QR” is an abbreviation for “quick response.” Generated using the details about what you want to share, the QR code is always unique. To use this code, friends can open their camera and scan it.

With any smart device, scanning is a native function. The alternative is for them to download the QR scan app, especially if they are not using an iPhone. The code works as a means to bypass the stress of having to Google locations or share Wi-Fi passwords.

How to Generate a QR Code

From Scanning QR Codes to a Google maps Location
  • To create a Location QR Code that works with Google maps, go to Google Maps and enter your location. Ensure that the map is as you would want it to look when shared to friends.
  • Click on the red icon to access even more details. This step is the best way to ensure that you capture all the details you want. In any case, Google Maps always includes the main features.
