This is a great tool, Paxtar. It was a bit slow on my slow computer, but it worked. Feel free to add it to the Help & Resources page in the wiki, if it's not already there. Thanks for putting it together!

Testing on my machine (Win 7) using both Google Chrome and Firefox: Does slow down when calculating as advertised, but also the dots seem to be marked about 250km to the north-west of their true location

Example: http://opengeofiction.net/#map=19/-6.72096/125.04490 (Main trainstation in Sadiemarkt, Calliesanyo [AR007]) - Calculator puts it about at the center of AR054 as shown in this screenshot. The blue plus was added by me after calculation as approximate proper location.

@Reese202: you're right. The map isn't correctly aligned to the results. Needs a little adjustment.

@anyadmin: Could I very temporarily draw some very long motorways at several locations on the map, that I could use to align my map to actual locations? Just long enough for them to show up, capture them, and delete them? Longitudinal at -170, -90, 0 +90, + 170. Latitudinal at -80, -60, -45, 0, 45, 60 and 80.

@anyadmin: Please ignore my request above. I think I found a way to get the information I need without affecting anyone else. Thanks.

The background map has been adjusted. If anyone finds any other issues, please let me know. Thanks.
