Places: Latitude Longitude Formats

Monday, Sep 15, 2008 at 13:46


The software that calculates the coordinates for the place can handle different lat/long formats with DD representing Degrees, MM representing Minutes and SS representing Seconds.

Examples are shown below:
DD.DDDD such as: 21.93528
DD MM SS such as: 21 56 07 and even 21 56 7.01
DD MM.MM such as: 21 56.1206

Although the software that processes these coordinates are rather robust, please do not use degree symbols, directional letters such as ‘S’ or ‘E’ or additional spaces.
