Is this point mapped to human understanding according to the three dimentions of space

What are the true values that pin points this special spot in space?

No there is no special point in space and there is no way of locating it even if there was because there is nothing fixed against which it could be measured.

Put another way, the big bang created space in this universe when it happened (and the continuing expansion of the universe is creating still more space).  Since space didn't exist before the big bang, it couldn't have happened at a point in space.
