Getting Latitude / Longitude from Google Maps

Previously users had to paste custom JavaScript into the URL box of Google Maps to be able to display the latitude and longitude of an address. With the latest version of Google Maps, this is no longer required.

  1. To begin search for your desired location as you normally would.
  2. Next, right click the red “A” pin displayed on the map. Select What’s here?
  3. Once you’ve clicked What’s here?, Google Maps will automatically display the (latitude, longitude) pair in the Address search bar at the top of the Google Maps page.

Conversely, if you have a lat, long combination you can plug that into Google Maps to show a location:  43.27069053158456, -75.28080940246582
