This tool converts latitude / longitude coordinates between three
commonly used notations. These notations are:
- degrees, minutes & seconds (DMS), example 60 deg 8 min 50.8 sec
- decimal degrees, example 60.147444 degrees
- integer degrees and decimal minutes, example 60 degrees 8.847 minutes
When you enter a valid coordinate to one of the three alternative inputs and click "Convert", the values of the other notations are calculated.
In many contexts the DMS notations also include letters N or S for north and south latitudes and letters W and E for west and east longitude. For simplicity, these are not handled here, neither are negative coordinates which are commonly used together with decimal degrees in case of south latitude or west longitude.
