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

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

 

Any help would be appreciated.

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

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.
