Use Latitude and Longitude With Mac Maps

You can use actual latitude and longitude numbers with the Maps app on your Mac. You can get these numbers for a location in two different ways. You can also put these numbers into the search field to go right to a specific location.

    This was a really useful video, thank you.

    It is easy to set up an Automator Service to extract the Lat and Long from the info in the clipboard and replace the clipboard content...

    1. Get Contents of Clipboard
    2. Run Shell Script
    sed -e 's/^.*&ll=//' -e 's/&lsp.*$//'
    3. Copy to Clipboard

    I saved the Service as "Map Item Info to Lat Long"

    Annoyingly the above service does not show within the Maps application because copying the information into the clipboard is done behind the scenes.

    So, sorry, I wouldn't bother trying this.

    Did not work for me. The pop up did not have L&L info.

    Dick: Are you using the latest version (Sierra)? Did you try a "Drop Pin" or are you using an existing landmark?
