Postal Address Lookup with Google Maps
With the Google Maps Lookup tool, you can quickly determine the approximate postal address of any location on the world map. Just drag the red marker anywhere on the Google Map and the address details (including the latitude & longitude) of that place will display in the pop-up window.
Internally, the tool uses the Geocoding features of Google Maps to find the address of a particular point. When you drag the marker, the geographic coordinates of that place are passed to the Geolocation API of Google Maps which then translates the location coordinates into a human-readable physical address.
To get started, type the city name, street name or even the zip code in the search box and hit Enter to quickly jump to that particular geographic region on the map. You can put the latitude and longitude values into Google Earth to know the date when the satellite images were taken.
The location finder service uses the Google Maps Geolocation API to determine the place. It returns the location based on your IP address, nearby cell towers location and WiFi nodes that your mobile phone can detect.
