Extracting coordinates from Google Maps



     I'm looking for a way to extract coordinates of a user's interactions on a map. Right now I have a web viewer pointed to Google Maps and a script that rips the HTML code from the webviewer and pulls out the Lat/long for the center viewport.

     Now the problem with this is that HTML code doesn't refresh with the center of the layout. The Lat/longs for the center viewport are tied to the initial view of the web viewer.

     Ultimately, I want the app to allow the user to select a location through a map interface that would search related records based on that location.

     Any ideas?
