Google Maps provides quick and easy mapping as well as satellite and hybrid views for many areas of the world, but gives no coordinates. maps.google.com/
If you know the coordinates then use:
maps.google.com/maps?ll=lat,long&spn=0.1,0.1&t=k
.. replacing lat,long with the known coordinates, in degrees with decimal fractions (positive latitude = north of equator, positive longitude = east of prime meridian)
KosherJava KosherJava Zmanim Clock Applet http://www.kosherjava.com/zmanim-project/zmanim-clock-applet/

Provides navigation map, shows latitude and longitude as user clicks desired location. These coordinates can be copy/pasted into the Kalendis User-Defined Locales window's dialog boxes for latitude and longitude. Also shows Elevation, useful for setting the elevation in Kalendis.
