Anyone know of a Google Map applet where you enter the latitude and longitude, and Google maps displays the location?
Google maps, does have "Place Finder", but I noticed that it is NOT suitable for double checking your GPS readings. It "converts" you data entry to certain nearby predefined locations. Clearly not suitable for double checking your work.
Just go to the google maps site, and put your coordinates in...
Example: In the search box, type in a latitude a space, a longitude and hit 'searc'h - Done.
Make sure to put latitude in first then longitude.Example 39.26609,-76.59861
My favorite coffee place: 43.13606 -93.38183 -- try it. On Google Maps, or, if you're in the area - try the coffee
I never thought to give that a try! Thanks for the quick reply.
For a couple of locations (in New Bern, NC) Google actually had street views of where I took the GPS readings and you could see the historical markers and the historical buildings. So I guess the GPS readings were pretty accurate. Nifty!
