The Easy Way to Find Latitude and Longitude Values in Google Maps

Up until now, you needed to use a javascript trick to get the latitude and longitude values from Google Maps. Now there are a couple of ways available that are much easier.

The first one is the LatLng Tooltip. It displays a tooltip next to the mouse cursor and displays the latitude and longitude directly underneath.

1. Go to Google Maps and login to your account.

2. Go to the upper-right corner and select the green flask icon .

3. Scroll down to the LatLng Tooltip and select it’s Enable radio button.

4. Click the Save changes button.

Now a tooltip will follow your cursor and display the latitude and longitude of where the cursor is pointing.

The other option is the LatLng Marker. It adds an option to the context menu to drop a marker to display the latitude and longitude of that spot.

1. Go to Google Maps and login to your account.

2. Go to the upper-right corner and select the green flask icon .

3. Scroll down to the LatLng Marker and select it’s Enable radio button.

4. Click the Save changes button.

Now all you have to do is go to the context menu, select Drop LatLng Marker

and the latitude and longitude will be displayed for you.
