Using coordinates to find something
I cannot figure it out. Over in the "Great Things You've Found" topic, tekit put this posting up:
Have a look at this swimming pool -
Is there an easy way to get there? Copy and pasting doesn't work. If I copy/paste and change it to 30.042125, 31.204470 GEarth takes me to a spot about 7 miles west of the swimming pool.
Am I missing something extremely obvious? Is the answer going to be something that I whack my forehead and go "Duh!"?

i was having the same confusion as you about the simplest format for coordinate search when i ran into your internet site. it was a big help to me and led to my solution. thank you for the inspiration.
Google Maps seemed to have a similar error but it is resolved.
Now you can use those numerals only coordinates and search and find them in google maps.
Example: 0.0,0.0 South of Ghana in the ocean.
