Coordinates | How do I find the coordinates for an address?


There are several web sites and software packages that can provide approximate coordinates for a street address in the USA or Canada. This process is often referred to as "geocoding".

Software Packages

  • Extra POI Editor - (NOTE: users report the geocoding feature is no longer working.) a free program written by Turboccc, one of the users at POI Factory. It does geocoding and much more.
  • Google Earth - shows coordinates for addresses, cross streets, and map locations
