While at Your Site
If you have adequate reception at your experiment site, you can use your phone to determine your latitude and longitude.
- Open Google Maps; it will zoom to your approximate location. Press and hold on the screen to drop a pin marker. Latitude and longitude will be displayed in the search bar.
- If you don’t have Google Maps, you can install a free GPS app before heading to your site.
Back at Home or School
If you don’t have adequate reception at your experiment site, once you get back to a computer you can use Google Maps to determine your site’s latitude and longitude. Go to maps.google.com and follow the instructions in the video.
