Jonathan Stott has posted a number of somewhat useful geographic tools on his site:
  • Place Finder - utilizes a place names database of 5.5 million records; zooms to a Google Map showing that location.
  • Location Finder - provides latitude and longitdue values for any place in the world that is selected in a Google Map interface.
  • Time Zone and Local Time Finder - click on a point on a Google Map and get the time zone for that location.
  • Height Finder - find the elevation for a specified point on a map; results use SRTM elevation data (doesn’t seem to work for Canadian locations).
  • Sunrise / Sunset Time Finder - click on a point on a Google Map and get the sunrise and sunset times for that location.
  • Distance Finder - calculates the straight line distance between two points using a Google Maps interface.
