How do I find the latitude and longitude of a place? What
are longitude and latitude?
Use the new Latitude/Longitude page to find the latitude and longitude of places all over the world. In addition, use the Calculate the Distance page to enter the name of two places. Click Calculate and the tool will return the distance (as the crow flies), plus the latitude and longitude of both locations.
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.)
