'''3.''' Please note that the kml format flips the order of latitude and longitude so you will need to reverse the numbers before pasting them into GoMaps areas. GoMaps uses the format of "latitude,longitude" with a comma separator, no space. This is kind of tedious, but you on need to do it once per area.

Note that if you end up with a very long list of values you need to transpose (need to switch the order of), you can use the script "Transpose Lat / Long" in GoMaps' "Developer" scripts folder. Read the script comments for instructions.

!! Going further

For the truly geeky, there is a way to get these coordinates using the Twitter API. This *could* be used to grab coordinates for specific city names though the lat / long would still need to be transposed.
