You can use country name for get Latitude and Longitude and also use full address instead of city or country

$address = 'india';

Or also you can use CIty name for get Latitude and Longitude

$address = 'Junagadh';

Or you can also use city, state and Country togther.

$address = 'Junagadh+Gujarat+India';

There are two method for get Latitude and Longitude

First is :

$details_url = "http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address=".$address."&sensor=false";

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $details_url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
$response = json_decode(curl_exec($ch), true);

// If Status Code is ZERO_RESULTS, OVER_QUERY_LIMIT, REQUEST_DENIED or INVALID_REQUEST
if ($response['status'] != 'OK') {
	return null;
}

//print_r($response);
//print_r($response['results'][0]['geometry']['location']);

$latLng = $response['results'][0]['geometry']['location'];

$lat = $latLng['lat'];
$lng = $latLng['lng'];	

OR
Second method is:

$geocode_stats = file_get_contents("http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address=india&sensor=false");

$output_deals = json_decode($geocode_stats);

$latLng = $output_deals->results[0]->geometry->location;

$lat = $latLng->lat;
