How to Find Latitude and Longitude of a Location

Have you ever encounter the problem of giving the direction to your place to other people coming over for a party?  Or have you experience the problem of getting somewhere but fail to search the place by its the place or road name? The best way to point to exact location in Google Map or other map or navigation software is by getting the latitude and longitude of the place.

But how do you get the latitude and longitude for a location? You can use the Google Map or Bing Map to find the latitude and longitude but the easiest way is to access a website specifically designed for this which is http://itouchmap.com/latlong.html.

You can double click or double tap on the point and it will display for you the latitude and longitude. Using this latitude and longitude (e.g 3.015037,101.793240) in the search query will display the location on the map.

Google Search Tips and Tricks – Finding Out the Distance between Two Places

There are plenty of ways you can utilize the Google Search to help you in your every day life. One of the wonder of Google Search is to find out the distance between 2 places. What do you need to do is just to type the query in the Google Search ” google1Distance between  city 1 and city 2″. The example I gave here is the distance between Bangkok and Krabi in Thailand. Google Search returned the results with the route, distance and the estimated time to reach the city. Now you see, you don’t have to open your navigation software or even the Google Map in order to do this.

That’s awesome from Google Search.
