If you want to get the exact longitude and latitude of a GPS point, you can use different free services. iTouchMap is one of those services. You have two ways to search for the longitude and latitude. You can actually input the degrees, minutes and seconds or you can drag a pointer around a Google Map. The latter is probably the easiest way of doing this since you probably don’t know the exact coordinates of your location.
To find a location using the map, follow the below steps:
- Use the zoomed out map, and drag the pointer to the country where your location is.
- Zoom into the map into the area or state where your destination is.
- Keep zooming until you find the exact location that you need the longitude and latitude coordinates for.
- When you are done, the coordinates will automatically show up in the Latitude and Longitude boxes beneath the map.
- If you pulled up the wrong coordinates, simply press the Clear/Reset All Markers button.
On this site, you can also enter the longitude and latitude information, and do basically a reverse lookup. This shows you on the map the area that corresponds to the inputted coordinates.
Another similar site is on JeepReviews.com since this is the vehicle that many people use to go geocaching and off-roading. This site provides you with two different ways to convert latitude and longitude degrees into GPS coordinates and one way to convert GPS coordinates into longitude and latitude coordinates degrees.
To find the GPS coordinates, you can put in the degrees, minutes and seconds, or you can input the decimal degrees. If you need the longitude and latitude information, input the degree and minutes of the GPS coordinates.
