Google Maps – How to find co-ordinates

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A useful way to find the exact latitude and longitude for any point on the earth is to double click the location in google maps – this will centre the location on screen and make it the origin point for the google map api… then just type the following into the address/url bar of your browser, and you will be given the exact co-ordinates.

javascript:void(prompt('',gApplication.getMap().getCenter()));

Great for geo-caching, or planning those cross country routes.
