Where Am I

Google Maps provides a nifty way to determine either the latitude/longitude of a location, or distances between two points.

Latitude/Longitude

This is easy.  Point to any place on a map, then right click.  Choose Whats Here?” from the pop up menu and you will get a small window with the latitude and longitude reported.

Distances

Right-click on your starting point.  Choose Measure distance.  Click anywhere on the map to create a path you want to measure.  

Convert Statute Miles to Nautical Miles

1 statute mile = 0.87 nautical miles.  There are lots of converters on line (here is one), or use a calculator.
