How about using Yahoo!'s API... please have a look

If one can locate his location on the yahoo map latitude and longitude values can be directly copied from the browsers URL. find your location double click on the spot and have your lat and long values ready in the URL..

Because mapping the coordinates to a location is hard, unless you have
a gigantic table listing each city in the world and the geographic
area it covers, so that you can find in which geographic area the
marker is.

The country is actually extracted from another field in your FAS
account, so a simple solution would be to add a new field to specify
the city, another field for the region, another field for......

Or, you can zoom in the map and look at the city name :)
