[SOLVED] Simple way for people to share location?


I need a simpler way than www.openstreetmap.org for users to click on a location and share it through a URL.

www.openstreetmap.org requires the following steps:

  1. Click on Share
  2. Check “Include marker”
  3. Move marker to desired location
  4. Copy/paste URL

Is there a website — preferably OSM-based — where people could just click and copy/paste the URL, so that I’d get eg. www.acme.com/lat=48.8918&lon=2.3044 ?

Thank you.

Edit: Even Google Maps doesn’t support this obvious feature:

See the first example ot the tutorial

If you click on the map, the apps generates the following message: You clicked the map at LatLng(51.519532, -0.108662)


Unless I’m mistaken, this involves 1) setting up my own public web server and 2) paying for a tile provider (Mapbox, etc.)?

Edit: There’s an easier way:

  1. Head for http://www.openstreetmap.org
  2. Zoom in
  3. Right-click > “Show address”
  4. On the left handside, mouse mouse to show marker
  5. Copy coordinates
