Lat/Long for a polygon

I'm looking to draw a polygon for an area and obtain the Lat/Long for the vertices on that shape as a potential download or at least see all of those vertices as a result, instead of having to hover over them to obtain those coordinates. They are potentially to be loaded in a mapping system that only accommodates Lat/Long.

Thank you for any input or guidance you can provide if able.
Best regards,
Joshua

    Joshua,

    If you export your polygon to gpx, you can change the extension from .gpx to .txt and use most text editors to open it. It will give you a nice list of the lat/ long for each point on the shape. The vertices would need to be due north south to have the same longitude, and due east west to have the same latitude.

    Thanks for reaching out,
    Rom
