    Lat/Long Look-up--Recommended Software

    I use the computer program called "Encarta 96 World Atlas" to find the long
    and lat of each city. It really works neat.

    All I have to do is type in the beginning part of the city's name and it
    automatically brings up all the possibilities. Then with a click of the
    mouse a map comes up on the screen with that city in its center. When I
    place my cursor on that city a lat/long box automatically shows me the
    correct lat/long....

    It is very comprehensive. There have only been a couple of places that I
    couldn't find and I suspect that is because of a typo in the names....
    It is made by Microsoft.
