Discover coordinates or search by latitude & longitude in Google Map

Google Maps offers two ways to find locations by coordinates or search by latitude and longitude:

1. Discovering coordinates:

  • Click on the location: In Google Maps, right-click on the location you want to find the coordinates for. A pop-up menu will appear, and you can choose “What’s here?” to display the latitude and longitude.
  • Use the search bar: Enter the address or landmark of the location you’re interested in. Once Google Maps displays the location, follow the same steps as above to right-click and reveal the coordinates.

2. Searching by latitude & longitude:

  • Directly enter the coordinates: In the Google Maps search bar, type the coordinates in either decimal degrees (e.g., 23.8041, 90.4152) or degrees, minutes, and seconds (e.g., 23°48′12.76″N, 90°24′54.72″E).
  • Use the “Search nearby” feature: If you’re unsure of the exact coordinates but have a general idea of the location, you can use the “Search nearby” feature. Click on the three dots in the top right corner of Google Maps, then select “Search nearby.” Enter the name of the area or landmark you’re looking for, and Google Maps will display a list of results. You can then click on the result to view its location and access the coordinates using the right-click method mentioned earlier.

Additional tips:

  • Make sure you specify the coordinate format (decimal degrees or degrees, minutes, and seconds) when entering them in the search bar.
  • Google Maps automatically recognizes both uppercase and lowercase letters for cardinal directions (N, S, E, W).
  • You can use the plus and minus symbols (+/-) to indicate positive and negative values for latitude and longitude.
