Here is a list of best free longitude latitude finder software for Windows. Using these freeware, you can find GPS coordinates i.e. longitude and latitude coordinates of a specific location. You can locate a place on the given map or manually enter the name of location to find respective longitude and latitude information. The coordinate format can also be customized to Decimal, DMS, DMM, Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM), etc. Apart from longitude and latitude, you can also view Elevation, Eye Altitude, etc. in some of these.
In one of these software, you can basically calculate longitude latitude from Maidenhead locators. Also, one of these lets you share the fetched GPS coordinates via Mail, Skype, Twitter, etc.
My Favorite Longitude Latitude Finder For Windows:
Google Earth is easily my favorite longitude latitude finder as it is a feature rich software which not only lets you find GPS coordinates, but also lets you explore earth. If you want a dedicated software to find longitude latitude, try GPS Coordinates Finder.
Google Earth is a well known software to browse and explore locations on the virtual world map. Along with exploring world, you can also find longitude latitude coordinates of a specific location.
How to find GPS coordinates in Google Earth
To find longitude latitude in Google Earth, manually enter the name of location in the search bar and hit the Search button. It will now locate the entered location on the virtual map and display the location’s brief history. The longitude and latitude coordinates of the specified place are displayed on the interface as highlighted in above screenshot. Along with longitude and latitude, it also shows Elevation, Eye Altitude, and Imagery Date. You can also move cursor over the map and view location coordinates. To customize coordinate format, go to Tools > Options and change coordinate format to Decimal Degrees, DMS, Universal Transverse Mercator, Military Grid Reference System, etc.
Google Earth is packed with various features to explore earth such as satellite imagery, 3D view, street view mode, layer customization (road, 3D building, ocean, weather, etc.), get directions, tour guides, flight simulator, etc.
GPS Coordinates Finder
GPS Coordinates Finder is a free longitude latitude finder app for Windows 10. It is a simple yet effective app to calculate longitude and latitude coordinates of a specific location. It provides a map to locate a place and then find longitude latitude of that particular location. The map view can be set to simple Map or Satellite view mode. Apart from locating a place on map, you can also type a location manually and find its longitude latitude coordinates.
Some useful features of this longitude latitude finder:
- You can customize coordinate format (Decimal, DMS, DMM).
- It lets you share your location coordinates with map link via Mail, Skype, Twitter, etc.
Overall, it is a straightforward app which does well what it does i.e. finding GPS coordinates.
GeoMag is a free, portable longitude latitude finder for Windows. It lets you locate a place on the global map and view respective GPS coordinates. To locate a place on the map, you can select a geodetic datum including Old Hawaiian, European, Oman, Tokyo, South America, North America, Cape, Australian, etc. As you move cursor over the map, it shows respective GPS coordinates below its interface. Also, it displays Declination and UTM (Easting/Northing) information. You can export retrieved information in a TXT file.
If you know the GPS coordinates, you can get other related information.
It is nice software to find longitude and latitude coordinates, but it would have been a lot better if it had option to manually add location. Nonetheless, it is still good. It provides options to change map look such as Graditude, Topo Skin, Space Skin, Declination Skin, etc.
WW2D is another free software which lets you explore various locations using satellite imagery and virtual maps. Along with exploring Earth, you can also view GPS coordinates of a particular location. As you hover mouse over a specific location on the map, it displays respective longitude and latitude coordinates. Also, using its Search (S) feature, you can enter a location to find its respective GPS coordinates. You can copy these coordinates to the clipboard. You can also export the map with coordinates in JPG format.
It provides nice Earth exploring experience and also lets you customize layers to view (images, landmark catalog, boundaries, etc.).
TinyLocator is a simple software to calculate longitude, latitude along with distance and azimuth between two Maidenhead locators. You can also find longitude latitude for an individual Maidenhead locator. The Maidenhead Locator a.k.a. QTH Locator is basically a geo coordinate system used by amateur radio operators.
How to find longitude latitude from Maidenhead locator
- From Convert Locators section, you can specify Maidenhead locator in respective field and press enter to view respective longitude latitude coordinates. It lets you view GPS coordinates in Decimal, DMS, and UI-view compressed format.
- If you want to find distance and azimuth values along with longitude and latitude, go to Calculate Distance/Direction section, enter Home and Target QTH locators, and hit the Calculate button. It will then show longitude and latitude values for the two Maidenhead locators, and also finds distance and azimuth values between the two locators.
You can copy the longitude and latitude as well as other fetched data to the clipboard. Also, you can view the location on the map using Show Location on Google Maps button.
