New tool for you to use: Easy LatLon

Filed under: Software Updates — by at 6:37 pm on Thursday, October 29, 2009

This is a pretty simple one.  I often find myself quickly needing to get the latitude/longitude for a particular point, and there’s not a simple way to get it.  There’s some easy ways, but none that are just simple and quick.  That’s what this fills.

Fire up Easy LatLon and browse around using the Google Earth Plug-in.  You can use the search box to find a location at the top by name or by address.  Every time the camera stops moving, the lat/lon on the left side of the page are updated.

Suppose you wanted to know the location of Yankee Stadium.  Go to Easy LatLon, type in “Yankee Stadium” at the top, and the results are there on the side.  Copy/paste them to whatever you need.

Like I said, it’s very simple.  I hope it’s helpful for you from time to time.
