This functionality is built-in. See section 1.3.4 of the Mathematica
book (as found by doing a search for coordinates in the Help Browser). 


If you past the following cell into a Notebook and click on the
hyperlink it will take you to the appropriate section of the on-line
book:

Cell[TextData[{
  "Coordinates, interactive selection of, ",
  ButtonBox["1.3.4",
    ButtonData:>{"1.3.4", "4.15"},
    ButtonStyle->"MainBookLink"]
}], "Text"]

Cheers,
