    its not clear from your question what you need? You are unable to populate geo-coordinates manually? or else you want geo-coordinates populated automatically? Can you explain in detail what exactly is needed? Jul 31, 2019 at 13:13

You will need to subscribe to an external service like Google Geocoding API. Then you will need to write Apex triggers to geocode your custom object addresses by calling the API methods, and then you can store the coordinates in the records.
