Hello,
This is a great page (it uses google maps) but it unfortunately actually
does not work because of wrong key:
http://www.findlatitudeandlongitude.com/
You can use it for geo coding and also for reverse geocoding.  I used it
sometimes, but as i said, the page is actually unfortunately unusable. :(
