The coordinates of a geographical location are its measurements of latitude and longitude. Lines of latitude cross the earth horizontally so that they are parallel to the equator. Lines of longitude cross the globe vertically, running perpendicular to the equator. Together both of these types of imaginary lines are used to pinpoint locations all over the earth. You can find the coordinates of a location by using one of several programs available on the Internet.
