Ensuring Placement of fixtures LAT/ LONG Over Water - How?

Hi,

I'm building a fixture that is out at Sea - approximately 3 miles out in the water of the English Channel.

I Create a New Project - it's all good. There we are - approx over the site.

How do I ascertain the EXACT GPS Co-ordinates of the primary structures.

Thanks, in advance,

Will

Hello.

Check the Scenery Editor gizmo tool, it has settable latitude, longitude and altitude parameters
