Using Google Maps to Find Coordinates
Posted by Go iHelp Administrator

You can search for a location in Go iLawn or Go iPave with the property's geographic location, the latitude and longitude coordinates. Depending on what version of Google Maps you're using, here's how to find the coordinates:

Older Versions:

  1. Go to the Google Maps website at www.maps.google.com
  2. Locate the property that you are interested in finding. 
  3. Right-click on the desired spot on the map to bring up a menu with options.
  4. In the menu, select What’s here?.
  5. Click the green arrow to get the latitude and longitude coordinates.
  6. Copy the top set of numbers
    • 46.166457, -84.381609
    • Make sure that you copy the comma, space, and negative symbol
  7. Paste the numbers into the Go iLawn or Go iPave address search box
  8. Do not enter a city, state or zip code with the coordinates. Just the coordinates alone are needed.
  9. Click "GO"

Newer Version Google Maps:

  1. Go to the Google Maps website at www.maps.google.com.
  2. Locate the property that you are interested in finding.
  3. Click on a location on the map that isn't a marker or red teardrop pin.
  4. Under the search box in the upper left corner of the screen, an info card with coordinates will appear. 
  5. Copy and past the coordinates from the info card and place them in the 'Address or Place Name' box in Go iLawn or Go iPave. 
  6. Do not enter a city, state or zip code with the coordinates. Just the coordinates alone are needed.
  7. Click "Go" and you will be placed on your coordinates.
