There are times when using Google Maps you need to get the latitude and longitude. However there is an easy way to get this info even though Google Maps doesn’t display Latitude and longitude coordinates.

The first thing to do to get latitude and longitude from google maps is to get your location on the map. Usually google maps will bring up the location at the center of the map. However it you move the map around, then you will need to re-center the map. In order to do this, right click on the marker of your desired location as close as possible on google map, and select center map here as shown in the screenshot below:
