Output of Lat&Long coordinates in Decimal Degrees

Postby carl » Wed Apr 23, 2008 10:23 am

I need to convert grid utm coordinates to Lat&Long coordinates, which I can do. Am I able to have the output in Decimal Degrees?

The Lat&long is in deg,min,sec and you want decimal degrees.

Type CAL at the command line. Windows calulator will open, pick scientific

copy & past lat. pick INV DMS then copy & past lat. pick INV DMS

There is no other way in the program that I can remember .


Should work now i think.

Hi all. I apoligize for not posting this earlier. I just noticed this post had been moved up to near the top of the list again so someone must be interested.

I did find a quick and easy way to do what I wanted, Lat & long output in decimal degrees. It was a simple variable that changed output from DD.mmss to DD.dddd. Unfortunately I don't remember which one it was. But just so ya know it is there. If I get some time I'll see if I can track it down again and post it.
