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 Android phone or tablet, open the Google Maps app 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 at your coordinates.

Get the coordinates of a place

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Maps app Google Maps.
  2. Touch and hold an area of the map that isn’t labeled. You'll see a red pin appear.
  3. You'll see the coordinates in the search box at the top.

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.
