Enter the country or city name into this tool, and you get a whole lot of information about that place, the least of which is its longitude and latitude.

This online tool allows you to find the distance between two points in the world. All you need is the longitude and latitude of those two places.

Virtual GPS
Another online tool that allows you to find the distance between two points in the world, given their longitude and latitude. You can also type the names of the places to have the online service compute the distance. The results include the distance (in statute miles, nautical miles and kilometres), the heading between the two locations, and some details about the two places, including their elevation.
