This is a handy trick for anyone that needs either decimal or regular latitude and longitude coordinates.
Firstly, you should go to maps.google.ca and find the location that you’d like to pinpoint.
- When you’ve found the spot that you’d like, move the mouse over it and right click, this will bring up the context menu.
- Select “What’s Here?”
- Google Maps will automatically centre the map and tell you the latitude and longitude
- Decimal version in the search box (latitude first, then longitude)
- Regular version (with Degrees°Minutes’Seconds” ) in the dropdown box
You can now use this latitude and longitude to plug into your GPS or mapping software (especially handy for Realtors!)
