Return Latitude and Longitude Fast - Google Maps

Return Latitude and Longitude Fast with Google Maps

A Query from the Google Map API Group revealed a useful answer...

"How can I find coordinates where my firm is placed ? www.maps.google.com does not show these details! How to check that ?"

Copy and Paste this code into the url once you have found your location


Google Maps Returns Latitude Longitude URL
returns a Longitude and Latitude
Google Maps Returns Latitude Longitude URL

The method is very useful if you need to find these values frequently.

The JavaScript is book markable

In FF Create a new Bookmark
copy this url (can be google.ca google.com etc)


Creating Bookmark Firefox

This will now be in your bookmarks toolbar.

Whenever you require a location coordinates on a google map click the bookmark and a prompt box displays the in latitude and longitude.

Very interesting tip!
I will use to place route diagrams in Alpinaut.com, the climbing and canyoning interactive map.
