You can get lat/lon of a business using Yahoo yellow pages. (To find them, go to and click on "Yellow Pages."

This morning I searched for and found with Yahoo yellow pages the address and phone number of the Nessler Center in Texas City, Texas and then I noticed the following text on the "location" line of my Netscape browser: zip=&slt=29.383600235&sln=-94.9024963379&cs=5&stx=nessler+center......

Using the WGS-84 datum I plugged in the 29.3836 as latitude and the -94.9024 as longitude and it put me in the parking lot of the Nessler Center. Very handy while driving through an area where the streets aren't well marked.
