Please could somebody lookup this longitude and latitude and confirm its location, so I know I have the conversion right. Im looking at adding some local POIs to POIPlace and want to ensure Im not giving bum information.

Thanks in advance.

Longitude: 2.16722
Latitude: 53.41917

That's in the middle of nowhere . Unless you mean -2.16722, that is between Lloyd, Bardsley, Grafton and Samuel streets

Please could you tell me where the below points too - and also how you are finding out where it points too, so I can check myself in future.

longitude: -2.203889
latitude: 53.442222

Many thanks for your help. It is much appreciated.
