Get Lat/Long of Census Tracts

In order to draw a tract polygon, I need a list of lat/longs that define each tract. (For example, a tract that is exactly a square would have four lat/long points that define it.)

Is there an established way to get the lat/long of a census tract?

  2. Census 2010 tract boundary files are here: http://www2.census.gov/geo/tiger/TIGER2013/TRACT/

    The vertices are lat-lons.
