# Is there an address to coordinates web page?

Followers 0

## Recommended Posts

I know of web sites like map quest which will map a coordinate, but is there a free site which will do the opposite?

Like after you have mapped an address, there would be a button to get that address's coordinates.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

http://www.geocode.com/eagle.html was just what I was looking for.

Here is another link that I like as it also can search on place names and do coordinate conversion.

Hmmmm...

That link didn't recognize my address or the main address in my downtown city. Not very reliable.

Yeah, the address lookup seems to not be recognizing any addresses this afternoon. Worked fine a few days ago.

How does one convert the coordinates as listed here on the website caches to decimal degrees without a converter tool?

Again, part of my FAQ. In short, take the integer off (the whole number) and multiply the remainder by 60.

41.24333 -> N 41°

0.24333x60 = 14.5998

round to 3 decimals: 14.600

N 41° 14.600

Positive numbers are North and East

Negative numbers are West and South

To reverse, take the minutes and divide by 60. Then add it to the degrees.

W 088° 12.457

12.457 ÷ 60 = 0.2076167

88 + 0.2076167 = 88.2076167

"W" is negative -> -88.2076167

Gotta say, you guys are such a source of cool information and useful websites. Have bookmarked so much stuff in the last several days. Hoping for a good day of caching tomorrow.

There is a program you can download at:

The program is a free download and you can then keep it in your computer. It will convert any format to any other. At the site above, look for the download button lost in the upper dark line. There are also some other free programs listed under the freebie button.

GlobeSniffer Writes: I have used this site before to grab coordinates for just about anywhere in the U.S.

You cannot type in an address, but you can seach by city, state or zip, and you can mark a spot anywhere on the map and get coordinates, or visa-versa.
