  • Google Analytics 4 API: Location dimension not appearing

    Posted by Isaiah on 4 December 2022 at 2:50 pm

    Hey, did you notice that the Google Analytics 4 API doesn’t include the ‘location’ dimension for the real time metrics? I was wondering, is any trick to pull out latitude and longitude data using this API? And do you know if they’re planning to add this feature before they shut down Universal Analytics?

    I get what you’re saying, it might be frustrating to not see the ‘location’ dimension in the Real Time metrics of Google Analytics 4 API. You’re right, it’s not there as of now. But, I believe this is because the team is still working on the new GA4 API – it’s in beta and they’re adding on it constantly. As for the latitude and longitude data, the trick is yet to be found.

    And about adding these features before shutting down Universal Analytics, Google’s been tight-lipped about it. We’ll just have to hang tight and see what features they roll out next. I’m just as excited as you to see how it’ll evolve.

    As of now, the Google Analytics 4 API does not directly provide latitude and longitude data or location dimension for real-time metrics. Unfortunately, there’s no workaround to extract such data at the moment. Google has not announced any plans to include this feature before retiring Universal Analytics, so we can only wait and see if Google will make this update in future iterations of the API.
