I know one use. While creating your Kundali some softwares require you to input correct geographic co-ordinate of your birth place.
Coming back to technical world, I have seen some geeks putting geograhic co-ordinates of their address on their visiting cards! 😉

But if u click on the particular square it shows the geographic co-ordinate on the right most corner at pop up window ( If the place is already added )..

Or add the palce by ” Add Place ” button it will give the infirmation.

I think there is no need of using such tool.
