Getting GPS Coordinates from Google Maps, The Easy Way

It’s a pain in the ass every time you need to get the GPS coordinates from a location in google maps, right? You’ll find yourself “googling” about methods that will do the trick (hopefully you’ll land in this page) like pasting javascript in your address bar or installing just another extension in your firefox.

You’ll probably do it every time you need it because you don’t remember the trick you used last time. I find it hard to remember complicated javascript sentences or the name of that specific extension too, don’t worry.

Well, I found an easy way to get your gps coordinates easily, in 2 steps. And I have pictures of it, too :-)

Step 1. Go to google maps and find the location you desire. Right click the exact location you need and select the option “What’s here?”:

Step 2. Click the green arrow (not the red indicator) to get your GPS coordinates:

Voilá.
