Sometimes we need to get the latitude and longitude of a point in Google Maps but Maps does not display them, so how do we get them?

Turns out its pretty simple. First centre your map on the point of interest, then type the following javascript into the location bar of your browser and hit return (this will execute the javascript code).

javascript:void(prompt('lat,long',gApplication.getMap().getCenter()));

You should get a popup displaying the latitude and longitude of the centre of the map.

We find this particularly useful when adding maps to web sites and we need finer control over centering the map, or adding markers.
