I'm trying to get the latitudes and longitudes of various data points on the Alberta Water License viewer. The mapping tool has the points displayed on it, and I'm able to click on them and get more information, but the only way that I can get the Lat/Long of the points currently is to open Google Earth and try and match the location exactly and manually write out the Lat/Long from that.

Is there some way I can extract this information more easily?

I don't have much GIS experience.
