Get Coordinates from Google Map

2013-02-28

I can’t find anywhere in the GUI of Google Maps where you can get the GPS coordinates for a specific point on the map. So here’s the work-around solution:

  1. On Google Maps, right click the point you want the coordinates for and center the map over it.
  2. Open your browsers JavaScript console. The easiest way on Windows is usually to press [F12] and select Console.
  3. Write the following command and run it: gApplication.getMap().getCenter().toString();
  4. The console should print the GPS coordinates as a string for you.
