How to get your Latitude and Longitude for the Preferences form

February 9, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments
As our ad says, when the sun goes down, Sunset Reports starts working.   Of course you will use Sunset Reports during the day too.  If you would like to have the time of sunset each day be displayed on your splash screen and available for scheduling of reports, you need to add the latitude and longitude of your location on the Preferences form.   There are a number of ways to do this from using a GPS at your location, to going to various websites that provide that information when you enter a city or zip code.   Here is a simple method.   Go to Google Maps.   Zoom into your location.   Right mouse click on your location and select “What’s Here?”.  On the top of the web page in the search box, is the latitude and longitude.   They are even in the right format.   Enter the first number as the latitude on the preferences form and the second number as the longitude.
