Thanks to Ingo Jansenn for finding sites that can take the name of a place
(landmark, town, city, country[region]) and get a lat/lon (if it finds the
place). Seems to work well.
For most of the world (except America) use:
Worldwide Placename to Coordinate look-up
Enter the [Name] and select a [region] from the list and [send] that. Never mind the rest of the page, unless you have other plans.
For the U.S.A. try this instead:
America Placename Coordinate Look-up
Just enter [Feature Name] (city, town, etc.) and [State or Territory] then [Send]. A list will appear showing the coordinates of all related.
