How do I find the latitude and longitude of a place? What
are longitude and latitude?
If your city or location is not on those lists, here are some
other things to try:
- The Global
Gazetteer has extensive lists of cities and towns for countries
around the world.
- See Discovering Maps for more.
- For United States cities and towns, use the U.S.
Gazetteer. You can enter a town name or a zipcode to find
the geographical coordinates.
You can also look up longitude and latitude for many U.S. and
foreign locations using the "How Far is it?" calculator. Instead of entering two locations, just enter the name of the city you are looking for in the "from" box, leave the "to" box blank, and click "Look
it up!" If your city is in the database, you will get a listing
of longitude and latitude. (Be sure your spelling is correct.)
