latitude Φ

longitude λ

Display Map centered on a specific Latitude and Longitude

Simply enter your latitude and longitude into the maps.google.com "Search Maps" field. You can add comment text at the end inside parentheses:

37.74004179435127, -122.41704940795898 (Bernal Heights)

Get Latitude and Longitude of an Address in Google Maps

Search for an address in Google Maps. Then paste the following into the address bar (delete the maps.google.com address):

javascript:void(prompt('latitude,longitude',gApplication.getMap().getCenter()));

Do not move the map around. If you move the marker away from the center of the map you will get the wrong coordinates. This trick actually shows the coordinates of the center of the map, not the coordinates of the marker. The marker on the map is centered by default after a search.
