Latitude and places are part of the google maps apk - the only way to remove them is to remove google maps.

You can find a useful chart of many apps in the cyanogenmod wiki, which shows the package name, description, and if it's safe to remove. There are most certainly apps in the wildchild ROM which are not in this list, but hopefully it will still help you.

You should take into account that removing some of these apps can make your phone a little more unstable.

You can safely remove DSPManager. Volume+ works better anyway.
