Determining Your Position

To determine your GNSS position, using Google Maps™:

  1. On your computer, open Google Maps.
  2. In Google Maps, locate your building, and the location of your antenna.
  3. Right-click on the location. Select What's here? At the bottom, you will see a card with the coordinates.
  4. Take note of your decimal position (e.g., 43.083191, -77.589718).
  5. Note: Should you prefer to determine your position in a different way, and as a result, have your latitude & longitude data in degrees/minutes/ seconds, you need to convert this data to the decimal format e.g., by using a conversion tool, such as Earth Point, or

  6. Determine your altitude: To find the elevation of your location, search online for a Google Maps elevation finder tool. Do not forget to add the height above ground for your antenna.

If a more exact altitude is desired, the use of a topographical map is recommended. Applying the WGS 84 standard will likely yield the most accurate elevation.
