Q: How to find the latitude and longitude coordinates of a place when you either have the street address or the zip code or just the name of a city.
Following are steps involved:
- Open the Google Maps website and enter the address details in the search box.
- Zoom In the Google Maps as much as possible until you locate the place for which you need the latitude and longitude.
- Right click that exact location on Google Maps and select “Center Map Here”
Click the “Link to this Page” hyperlink on Google Maps website and copy paste the URL into notepad – look for the value of ll parameter in the URL – they are the latitude and longitude coordinates of your home.
Copy paste that value in the Google Maps Search box again to confirm the location on Google Maps. Alternatively, you can use the reverse geocoding Google Map to find the co-ordinates with a simple click.
