Quick tip: Finding Latitude and Longitude with Google Maps Labs

My posts on how to use Google Maps within Flash have been some of the most popular posts I've had on SuperGeekery. They've generated a lot of emails from people around the world and those questions from readers have helped me learn mapping even better. 

I got an email recently about centering a map and it gave me the opportunity to use a new tool in the Labs area of Google Maps. I made a short video below on how the feature works. I like getting the latitude and longitude from Google directly since it's the mapping service that my application is going to be using. I used to have to get this information from the permalink to a map, but now it's easier than ever. Take a look a the video below. (Sorry for the muffled audio. I'm fighting off a head cold.)
