    Getting the lat/long from an address

    Ok - so here is the deal -

    I need to get the lat/long of an address.

    Here are my questions....

    1) Using vb.net (application) do i need to actuall create and display a map?
    2) How do i get the lat/long of an address?
    a) I have the address lookup working ok - using a push pin - but i would like to get the coords of the push pin

    thanks

    I'd suggest geocoding the address to create a location then use the location to derive the Lat/Long ising this code:

    I've used it and it's a slick solution.
