    Link to a GPS Latitude and Longitude?

    How can I construct a hyperlink to a GPS decimal Latitude and Longitude?

    This needs to run with a local version of MapPoint 2002... it's an Intranet application and Internet access is not always availavle.

    I am OK with any solutions, including a link to an EXE/DLL with parameters, or Active-X control, or any other method you can think of!

    Thanks for the community assistance!

    If you can get the lat/lon into a text file, the import and zoom to that location would be easy.. to read the lat/lon directly to a serial port with the GPS would be a bit more work, but is certainly possible. Check out the GPS articles on this site, I think there is a solution.

    Just one at a time?

    Thanks for the reply... I am not needing several points... just one.

    Right now, I am just linking to MapPoint online, as follows:

    http://www.mapblast.com/(lu1ysluqzubnzg454snv2w55)/map.aspx?L=USA&C=34.7545300169%2c-96.7010826511&A=7.16667&P=|34.7545300169%2c-96.7010826511|1|SFN:+03803-01%2c+PONTOTOC+CO%2c+HWY%20S-001|L1|

    But I am hoping to find a way to use a locally installed MapPoint for the guys in the field using laptops with no Internet access.
