Find or enter latitude & longitude

You can search for a place using its latitude and longitude GPS coordinates. You can also find the coordinates of a place you've already found on Google Maps.

Besides longitude and latitude, you can use plus codes to share a place without an address.

Enter coordinates to find a place

  1. On your computer, open Google Maps.
  2. In the search box at the top, type your coordinates. Here are examples of formats that work:
    • Degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS): 41°24'12.2"N 2°10'26.5"E
    • Degrees and decimal minutes (DMM): 41 24.2028, 2 10.4418
    • Decimal degrees (DD): 41.40338, 2.17403
  3. You'll see a pin show up at your coordinates.

Get the coordinates of a place

  1. On your computer, open Google Maps
  2. Right-click the place or area on the map.
  3. Select the latitude and longitude, this will automatically copy the coordinates.

Tips for formatting your coordinates

Here are some tips for formatting your coordinates so they work on Google Maps:

  • Use the degree symbol instead of "d".
  • Use periods as decimals, not commas. Incorrect: 41,40338, 2,17403. Correct: 41.40338, 2.17403
  • List your latitude coordinates before longitude coordinates.
  • Check that the first number in your latitude coordinate is between -90 and 90.
  • Check that the first number in your longitude coordinate is between -180 and 180.
