    Google Maps Lat & Lon

    I'm not sure if this has been posted in the Lounge previously so please pardon me if it has.

    For those of you who like to play around with Google Maps, this will display the latitude and longitude for the center of the map.
    Once the map has been generated, enter the following line into your search bar and press Enter.

    java script:void(prompt('',gApplication.getMap().getCen ter()));

    For Firefox users it can be even easier.
    Create a new bookmark and open the bookmark's properties. Enter an appropriate name (such as "Google Maps Lat & Lon") and cut and paste the script into the Location field.
    I placed the bookmark in my Bookmarks Toolbar to keep it handy.

    Cheers
    Ken
