Polygon Alarms - What is my latitude / longitude

As I have moved forward with polygon alarms, I needed a method to get the latitude / longitude for an address. As it turns out there are several public sources for this information. They however do not allow integration with an application without paying a monthly cost.

Due to those restrictions, I created a public webpage that will allow users to get their latitude and longitude. I selected Google Maps for the provider. The webpage can be accessed from the Weather Message home page or directly at http://www.wxmesg.com/geomap/wxgeomap.htm

I will try to put a link in the setup program to take users to this webpage.
