Re: [Ambassadors] Heads up please: Ambassadors map is now online.



Here is a method I found to get the latitude and longitude coordinates from Google maps (maps.google.com), thus allowing you to find any point anywhere (that Google can find).

http://lifehacker.com/software/google-maps/how-to-find-latitude-and-longitude-267361.php

Just be sure the position you want is centered on the map.  So you would enter the search terms (your address for ex.) into the Google map location bar, hit enter, and then use this _javascript_ in the browser location bar (replace the maps.google.com with this _javascript_), do not move the map around.  It works quite well.

Also be sure if you use NoScript in Firefox to allow _javascript_ for google.com.

or alternatively,

18° 31' = 18 + (31/60) = 18.5166
73° 55 = 73 + (55/60) = 73.9166

Thanks.
