Google Maps can now give co-ordinates and address
Find the Exact Address of any Place on a World Map
Written by Amit Agarwal on October 24, 2008 Text Size
It so happens that you know the exact road directions for reaching a particular point in the city but have no clue about the postal address of that place.
There’s now some help at hand in the form of Google Maps. Just click any point on the Google Map and this mashup will show you the rough snail address of that place.
For best results, search for the street name, city or zip code in Hybrid mode, zoom in as much as possible and then click the point whose address you are looking for.
This is possible due to the reverse geocoding feature that was introduced in Google Maps today. When you click a point on the map, the latitude and longitude co-ordinates of that place are translated into an address which is what you see on the map.
The location mashup is based on the sample code provided by Google API team but enhanced with a search function. Picture: flickr
