Get latitude and longitude from map

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 
I need again your talents!
I'm making a software for my DB customers. Being in a geographical area or addresses are not accurate enough to be displayed on a map, I need to identify the homes of customers with their latitude and longitude.
For display map, I use Google Map UDF by Seangriffin ...
I can't find a solution for extract the geographic coordinates of homes when I'm "pointing" on the map,  ...
I'm open to any ideas / suggestions even if it has to go through a system other than google map ...
thank you
PS: I thought I read that The Google Latitude API allowed to do that, but it has been closed since August 2013 ... so we need another solution / idea ...

Mmmmm ...

This feature allows me to locate from an IP but does not give me the coordinates from a single "pointing" (with left click) on the map ...

I already know where the houses are, but I want to extract the latitude and longitude of it, from a single click on the map.

Any idea?
