No.

for the very good reason as we try to hover over the co-ordinates to copy them they change. If you can advise how to then sure.

In Google maps, take curser to position you want.

Right click & select "what's here?"

Co-ordinate appear in google map search bar.

Are you trying with Google Earth ? it should be Google Maps, using your browser. Also have a look at my post on how do this on the Water POI Forum pages.

Thanks for your help
