I have a web service that is returning this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?>
<GeocodeInfo xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <Latitude xmlns="http://tempuri.org/">42.0903</Latitude>
  <Longitude xmlns="http://tempuri.org/">-71.423011</Longitude>
  <AddressID xmlns="http://tempuri.org/">27195</AddressID>

I am trying to extract the latitude like this but I am not getting any value

sLatitude = xdoc.SelectNodes("/Latitude")

Can someone help me with this.

a better way is to use a namespace mannager

XmlNamespaceManager manager = new XmlNamespaceManager(xdoc.NameTable);
manager.AddNamespace("tmp", "http://tempuri.org/");

sLatitude = xdoc.SelectNodes("//tmp:Latitude")

this way you bind the "tmp:" prefix to the tempuri namespace first
and then you use the prefix in teh XPath
