LatLong Crosshairs for Google Maps
The Canadensys LatLong Crosshairs allows you to get the coordinates for any point in Google Maps and offers them separated by a tab, so you can easily paste them in your spreadsheet. It’s an alternative to Google’s right-click “What’s here” and more precise than Google’s LatLngTooltip and LatLngMarker.
