Get Latitude and Longitude from Google Maps

  1. Search for an address or the place you want to locate Google Maps. This will open a Google map. Depending on the specificity of your search, Google may drop a pin in the exact location for you, or else offer you options.

  • For instance, if searching "Starbucks Seattle", a map will appear populated with several possible locations for you to choose from.

  • If you don't have an exact address, zoom in or out on the map to locate your desired geographic location manually.

2. Drop a pin. Click on the exact location you'd like coordinates for.

  • Once a pin is dropped, the latitude and longitude will be a part of the URL in your address bar, but there's a even simpler way to get the information.

3. Right-click on the pin and select "What's here?". To right-click on a Mac, hold down Ctrl as you click on the mouse. Instead of dropping a pin, you can also right-click on the map location directly.

4. Get your location's latitude and longitude. The coordinates will be located in a rectangular box that appears on the bottom of your computer screen.

  • The latitude coordinate is listed first in the coordinate pair.
