SharePoint 2013 has this new cool fieldtype called "GeoLocation". This field allows us to save coordinates and show the location via Bing Maps:
Unfortunately, this field type can only be created via Custom Code. One way is the Client Object Model, another one is PowerShell:
$web=get-spweb http://sp2013$list=$web.lists["CustomList"]$list.fields.AddFieldAsXml("<Field Type='Geolocation' DisplayName='Location'/>")$list.Update()
