    I frequently have a need for simply clicking on a map and extracting the coordinates for the point I clicked on the map. When using ArcMap, I used identify tool and it was easy extracting the map coordinates. In ArcMap this is super easy as one can select and copy these coordinates for pasting into other applications. 

     

    Use case

    I do a lot of georeferencing of botanical collections and I frequently have to measure a certain distance from a town or point of interest and then copy these coordinates to a clip board before pasting into Excel or Microsoft Access. It would be great to have a tool that can easily make the coordinates available for selection and copying without having to rely on add-ins like the "Coordinate Conversion"  add-in.
