Returning value from a Web Control

P: n/a
This is a way out there question, but hoping this is possible.

I have an Access form with the Web Control.
The web control navigates to a web page that calls the Google Maps
API.
I want to be able to click a point on the map, and have the
coordinates returned so that I can do something with them in VBA.

I can put a text control in the HTLM on the web page, so is I can't
directly process the map click coordinates, maybe I can retrieve the
values in the map's text control?

Wishful thinking but I'm hoping this is possible.
Any help is appreciated.

Salad, thanks but I am already doing this. The article only speaks to
retrieving coordinates and plotting them on the map. I'm doing this in
Javascript already. What I'm trying to do is to pull or push these
coordinated back into Access VBA.
