I need to know the location of a definite road in Basel, Switzerland. St.-Jakobs-Strasse.

How can I find it? I tried the search function, but no results. :(

the search fuction does not allow you to search for streets however it does let you search for an address on that street heres an example of how to use the address search......
111 W. Fake St Chicago,IL of course you'd replace the "111 W. Fake St." with a real address,replace "Chicago" for any ity of your choice, and replace "IL" for any state or province of your choice

Can you find the spot with Google Earth? If you can find the street, then Google Earth will give you the coordinates. if not, possibly post asking if anyone could send the coordinates to you from there. Also, have you tried a Google Search to find the location? EverythingGoogle will find you the answer.

Yes, but this person is looking for something in Euorope, and Google does not allow Euoropean searching, so I've found. I'm sure it will be comming though!!

Use multimap.com

http://www.multimap.com/map/browse.cgi?client=public&X=845500.268006874&Y=6001000.12065415&width=500&height=300&gride=845508.268006874&gridn=6000947.12065415&srec=0&coordsys=mercator&db=CH&addr1=&addr2=St.-Jakobs-Strasse.&addr3=basel&pc=4056&advanced=&local=&localinfosel=&kw=&inmap=&table=&ovtype=&zm=0&out.x=6&out.y=9&scale=5000

The latitude and longitude are displayed at the bottom of the page. Just copy and paste the numbers into the search box in Google Earth.
Don't forget to put a comma inbetween. It should be like this:

47.5511, 7.5953
