    From computer

    Find the coordinates

    Do you use the famous Google home maps service from your computer and would like to know how to find Google Maps coordinates? Very well, I'll explain it to you right away. To know the exact coordinates of a specific place you must first open Google Maps in your web browser by typing www.google.com/maps/ in the address bar and pressing the button Send on the keyboard. Then type the name of the place of interest in the search field at the top and select the most relevant result among those proposed to you.



    Now, right click on the place card that is shown to you on the map and choose the item What is it here? from the menu that opens. Once this is done, at the bottom of the Google Maps web page you will see a box appear with the exact coordinates of the place in question inside.

    If, on the other hand, you do not know the name of the place whose geographic coordinates you want to know but have still managed to locate it on the map, left click on the reference point. Once this is done you will see, at the bottom of the service screen, the box with the geographical coordinates inside.

    In both cases, to take note of the coordinates click on them and then you can copy them from the box that you will later see open on the left by highlighting them, right clicking and choosing the item Copy from the menu that is shown to you or, alternatively, using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + C (your Windows) or cmd + C (your Mac).

    If you want, you can also save the coordinates in question directly on the map so that you can find them more easily at a later time or you can share them with other users. In the first case, click on the item Save present in the box that opened on the right, while in the second case click on Share then choose whether to copy the link obtained and then paste it where you see fit (e.g. on Facebook or in an electronic posting message) or whether to incorporate the map of the place on your site, on your blog or on any other web page where you can insert an embed code.


    You can also view what's nearby the coordinates found on Google Maps. How you do it? Click on the item Nearby always present in the box on the left and that's it. If you want to mark the place with a label instead, click on the entry Add label.


    Enter the coordinates

    If, on the other hand, you have the geographical coordinates referring to a specific place and you are interested in finding it on Google Maps, all you have to do is open Google Maps in the browser window as I indicated in the previous lines, type the coordinates in your possession in the search field located at the top left and press the button Submit on the keyboard.

    Once this is done, you will be moved to the exact point on the map referring to the place whose geographic coordinates you have previously entered. Very simple, don't you think?

    You can also save the coordinates in question directly on the map and then be able to find them more easily later or you can share everything with other users. In both cases, just follow the directions I gave you a few lines above, when I explained how to find Google Maps coordinates.

    Always following the instructions I gave you previously, you can also view what's nearby and you can affix a custom label. If instead you want to use the coordinates in question to add a missing place on the map click on Add a missing place.
