Dear Rob,
 
I was very excited when I saw that you believed this product to give the
co-ordinates of any address in the world. However, when I went to it, it
could give me nothing for Ireland. In fact the only reference to Ireland was
something called "Ireland CT" in Australia!

All the best,

It's Google Earth that provides the results. I suppose the coordinates are
chosen so that the street will fit on the visual map, but I have no further
insight in the way Google decides on what coordinates to give. I tried just
entering 'the Netherlands' and it came up with a location 12 KM from
Utrecht, which indeed lies exactly in the center of the Netherlands.

Hi Rob,
If you specify just the street without house number, what will it give as a
result?
I supposed it is the middle of the street, but this does not seemm to be
true.

Hi all,

We have created the 'Geographical Tools' page on the Loadstone GPS web site
at:

http://www.loadstone-gps.com/tools/

On this page we will try to bring together a number of geographical tools
that may help you to get the most out of the Loadstone GPS program. There is
the Geocoder, a tool that lets you look up the geographical coordinates for
a given address anywhere in the world, based on 'Google Maps' and quite
accurate. All POI-Converters so far in use have been integrated into one
tool, the 'POI Converter', which has been improved. The need to wait between
conversions has been eliminated and the tool is UTF-8 compliant. 
All POI-converters on the RMPRO-HOSTING domain have been disabled as of
Sunday March 4th. Also you'll find a 'Distance and Heading Calculator' that
lets you calculate distance and heading between two points by entering their
geographical coordinates.

If you have any questions about these tools, or if you have an idea about
other tools that might make the use of Loadstone GPS easier, please contact
the Loadstone team via the mailing list or via the contact page.

Rob
