Geocoding is the process of converting addresses into geographic coordinates like latitude and longitude, which can be used to mark position on map.
To use the Google Maps Geocoding API, one must need an API key, which can be get form here
Modules needed :


Below is the implementation :


# Python program to calculate geographic
# coordinates of places using google
# geocoding API
# importing required modules
import requests, json
# enter your api key here
api_key = 'Your_api_key'
# url variable store url
# take place as input
place = input()
# get method of requests module
# return response object
res_ob = requests.get(url + 'address =' +
                place + '&key =' + api_key)
# json method of response object
# convert json format data
# into python format data.
x = res_ob.json()
# print the value of x

Output : 


{'results': [{'address_components': [{'long_name': 'Dehradun', 'short_name': 'Dehradun', 'types': ['locality', 'political']}, {'long_name': 'Dehradun', 'short_name': 'Dehradun', 'types': ['administrative_area_level_2', 'political']}, {'long_name': 'Uttarakhand', 'short_name': 'UK', 'types': ['administrative_area_level_1', 'political']}, {'long_name': 'India', 'short_name': 'IN', 'types': ['country', 'political']}], 'formatted_address': 'Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India', 'geometry': {'bounds': {'northeast': {'lat': 30.4041936, 'lng': 78.1089305}, 'southwest': {'lat': 30.2466633, 'lng': 77.92533879999999}}, 'location': {'lat': 30.3164945, 'lng': 78.03219179999999}, 'location_type': 'APPROXIMATE', 'viewport': {'northeast': {'lat': 30.4041936, 'lng': 78.1089305}, 'southwest': {'lat': 30.2466633, 'lng': 77.92533879999999}}}, 'place_id': 'ChIJr4jIVsMpCTkRmYdRMsBiNUw', 'types': ['locality', 'political']}], 'status': 'OK'}
