Whether you want to quickly add a waypoint to your GPS, or view a map of a known location, it can often be convenient to use real latitude and longitude values with Google Maps instead of dealing with street addresses.
Rerieving a map for a lat/lon value is simple enough with Google Maps. You can simply enter the decimal latitude and longitude into the search form instead of a street address.
This will return the coordinates of the map’s center point. You might want to double-click a position on the map before running the above code. Doing so will reposition that point to the center of the map automatically.
