Google Earth is a great crutch if you need one! IF you're looking for a specific place and don't have much information, google earth is a great place to reference. If you're looking for coordinates it will give you that as well.
It's great for Geocaching!
I found this:
to get Lat. and Long. from google maps !
What a great feature. Has anyone checked their coordinates for accuracy?
Yeppers! I've used Google Earth for Hiking 14ers in colorado, finding trail heads and geocaching as well.
This is a nice position finder add-on to Google Maps
"Has anyone checked their coordinates for accuracy?"
Google Earth is EXTREMELY accurate. I used it as much as practical in my submitted POI's here and for all of my personal POI's. It's uncanny how accurate it is.
My own personal technique for building a POI entry for a residence, for example, is to use GE to point to a spot about 10 feet up and directly in the middle of the driveway. When I arrive, Roxy says to turn either left or right and when I do, she says arriving at destination. Right on the money, never wrong. Coolest thing you can imagine.
What a great tool, thanks dr5274 for providing this link.
