I'd like to get the lat/lon coordinates of points along a road, say every 100 meters or so. I could go to Google Maps and manually click on points, but I'd like to do this automatically.

Can't you use a GPS? – Omne Sep 24 '12 at 20:53
@Omne No, because then I'd have to drive along the entire road, which might not be anywhere close to where I live. GPS measurements can also be off by tens of meters. – BenH Sep 24 '12 at 22:51

It's not possible to do this (from Google maps, at least).
