does anyone know of an online tool that would generate latitude and longitude based on block and lot numbers? i need something that would produce the coordinates even if there is no number address for the property, and if there were the option to upload a spreadsheet with the block and lot numbers that would be even better.

this is for an interactive mapping project where we have a lot of block and lot numbers for vacant lots. converting this information to a mappable coordinate (the map itself is based on google maps, which doesn't recognize block and lot information) has proven difficult- the best we can do so far is finding the block and lot location in OASIS (OASIS Map), then entering the closest intersection into a long/ lat finder (using google maps, or steve morse's site here: Batch Conversions of Address to Latitude/Longitude in One Step (Forward Geocoding)).

obviously, though, this gives us the latitude and longitude for the intersection, rather than the actual lot. any suggestions would be appreciated!

Did you ever get any info on this? I'm trying to do a similar thing: go from block/lot to address or latlong. My township says it doesn't have this info electronically, which I find rather surprising. I'm with a nonprofit advocacy group so I'm looking for a $0 (or close) solution.

Find your location on Google Maps, right click and select "What's here". The latitude and longitude will be in the search box and in the lower left.
