How do latitude and longitude field on account populate ?

I've been trough several posts / discussions but I'm still not clear on how do standard latitude and longitude fields on Account populate in Salesforce ? Do they automatically populate when I enter the account adress (it seems not...) ? Do I need to build a piece of code to retrive this data from Googe Maps (or oher provider) with an API ? Should I go for a specific geolocation app in the Appexchange ? The reason I need to populate this data is because I later need to export it and use it for account geolocation on a Website (store locator on Google Maps)
Many thanks for you advice !

Did not worked on geolocation.
But I think you need to populate geolocation fields through address fields.
A good article @ https://www.packtpub.com/books/content/adding-geolocation-trigger-salesforce-account-object
