Google Maps Bookmarklets

These Javascript code “bookmarklets” can be useful when transcribing locations off of a maps.google.com page. Open your web browser’s bookmark editing dialog box and create new bookmarks with the name set to what you want and the “location” set to the Javascript. The first one shows the WGS84 latitude and longitude of the center point of the map. The second one creates GPX information about items on the map display that you can use in your GPS or other mapping software.
