After a very close call the last time he was making a flight for the mafia, Barry received a new set of orders for his next flight. The Don really loved his creative little puzzles, and Barry knew that the only reason he could solve them was that he and the Don were often on the same wavelength with their thoughts. With the Don's newest encoding scheme, there would be no more need to brute force or guess at any part of the solution like last time, so that would save Barry a bit of time figuring out his final destination.
The image sent to him by the Don consisted of two 7x7 grids, filled with squares of various colors presented in a random order.
Barry looked at the message sent by the Don and quickly setup the navigational unit in his plane and prepared for takeoff.
Where is Barry flying to this time?

The partial answer below was such a great start, I was hesitant to add a hint at all, but it's been a while with no activity, so maybe this will get some of the juices flowing.
The partial answer and comments below it give almost everything needed to solve the puzzle. Given the starting point below, what's a simple thing that can be done to take the colors and translate them to a legal lat/long number?
Some of the colors are red herrings; each color falls into one of two categories. Determine which colors are actually relevant to the puzzle, figure out the correct order to put the relevant colors in, and then use that to convert them to the appropriate numbers.
