Cool we need more GPS locations in WIkiTree.... doing genealogy 2016 is = using GPS... and mark houses graves etc.. so other people find them....

I have played around at WikiData and they support adding coordinates for burial places ==> you can easily mark all gravestones and do a search and display the location on a map....


See blog People buried on q252312...

If you type the latitude and longitude into the search box on Google maps it will display the location with a pin. You can then click onto the share button to get a URL which you can use. Here is an example to try at my local cemetery for the grave of Lena Anderson (Holderson-1):

-38.3466181,145.7614282

Similarly it can be done on Openstreetmaps. Here is the URL for Openstreetmaps.org:

http://www.openstreetmap.org/search?query=-38.3466181%2C145.7614282#map=18/-38.34662/145.76143

Generally GPS co-ordinates gathered by most user devices are only accurate to several metres, so they wont show exact locations of a grave, just a general location.
