Easy Trick to get Latitude & Longitude

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!)
