coordinates (from an address)

 

I need to find what is the best way to verify an address. When I enter an address into geocoder, teraserver or any of them they don’t always agree. I enter an address into Google Maps and usually can view the location on the satellite view but don’t know how to convert that to latitude / longitude. Is there a site that when I find the location I want that will display the coordinates?

thanks

Google Maps can be used to find coordinates. Find the place you require coordinates for, and double click on it to centre the map around that point. Then click the "link to this page" link, and the coordinates (in degrees and parts of a degree in decimals) appear in the address bar, eg "http://maps.google.co.uk/?ll=51.455558,-2.605047&spn=0.032304,0.069523". In this case the latitude is 51.455558, and the longitude is -2.605047. The reverse is possible by entering the lat and long into the search bar, with a space between them.

here is the site to convert latitude / longitude

Be aware that it is GIGO. The data the map sites is not always correct. It may get you close, but not always on the money.

I place my old address into the above URL and it showed a location, about two homes north & on the incorrect side of the street.

Why the incorrect side of the street? Coral Springs, FL uses ONE instead of ONW. (ONE=odd-north-east & ONW=odd-north-west). ONW is a normal convention.

Why two home north? The street is a cud-de-sac and it depends on how the street center line data was entered.

Thanks Charlie

Thanks for these directions. I've been trying to figure how to get Lat & Long out of Google Maps and the obvious never occurred to me.

Once you get the google map add on for the lat and long. and get it figured out it also give you geocaching coordenances. (I need spellcheck sometimes)LOL

Google Earth gives your coordinates on the screen

If you use Google Earth and not Google Maps you can view the cooridnates directly on the screen.

When in google earth to view the cord just right click on the blue box and select properties then it will turn yellow and open a box to the left with the info. You can also move it to differeant location and rename it to something and then save it for future use and view a number of location on the map by putting a check in the bos next to each search.
