The tool is very basic – it allows you to look up the latitude and longitude of any address (well, any address that is supported by the Yahoo Geocode API). It came in handy when I needed to find some lat/lng pairs for another app I was building…and so I put it the tool out there for people to use. This was back in the day when Google had just released their mapping API, but didn’t have a public geocode API. Ahh…the good ole days.
