Finding your coordinates
There are many ways that you can find your GPS coordinates. The best way is to use a handheld GPS device, this is the most accurate method as it will record your exact position.
Send us the coordinates as they appear on your screen. Keep in mind that weather and obstructions to your view of the sky can lower the absolute accuracy of your readings.
If you do not have a GPS device, you can use Google Maps
– Using Google Maps –
- Find your location by typing in your address on Google Maps or the name of the place you wish to find.
- Switch from Map to Satellite view by clicking on the photo in the lower left that looks like this.
The satellite images provide very accurate GPS coordinate information, but street addresses may not. After searching for a location, you may need to move your placemark to the exact visual point that you want your GPS coordinates to represent.
- Once you have located your position, click on the map to “drop” a pin or marker.
- As soon as you do this you will see an information box appear at the lower edge of the Google Map like this:
Your Latitude and Longitude are shown at the lower edge of this box. You can copy/paste from this box. It is a little tricky, we suggest hovering your cursor to the left of the coordinates and selecting left-to-right.
Copy the coordinates into our order form. PLEASE NOTE – for all custom orders we will contact you by phone or email before placing the order for production to confirm your coordinates and answer any other questions you may have.
Thats it! Once we receive your longitude and latitude, we will verify the coordinates and your order information by return email. When we receive your confirmation we will be able to process your order. Please allow 3 weeks for delivery.
