This small tool aids you in getting the coordinates for your polyline or polygon.

I made a little tool, which can make the process of finding coordinates for polygons and polylines in Google Maps a lot easier and intuitive.
It lets you draw a line with multiple points by just clicking on the map. When you’re done, you just copy-paste the coordinates for further use.

I made it for myself, as I needed to create some polygons for a little project. The process of finding the coordinates is very tiresome, bordering impossible. With this tool, it should be a breeze.
I tested it using IE9, Firefox 4 and Google Chrome, and had no problems.
1. Go to the area, that you want to work with.
2. Click “Start Plot”. When you click the map, it will register the coordinates and append it to area below the map.
3. When you’re done, go to the coordinates below the map and copy-paste them.
That’s it, you can now use the coordinates as you wish.
Notes: You can disable and activate the plotting as y0u wish. That might be useful, if you find the behavior annoying while navigating the map. You can also undo the added coordinates by pressing the button “remove last”.
I hope you find it useful.
Here’s a short video demo. The quality is awful, but I hope it gets the message across. Go to 720p and play in fullscreen for the best result.
