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.
