About DMS to Decimal Degrees
You can convert degrees, minutes, seconds for both latitude and longitude to decimal degrees.Simply enter the DMS values for lat or both lat and long, than press the convert button. The decimal degrees coordinates will be calculated and displayed below the form.
How to Convert Degrees Minutes Seconds to Decimal Degrees
First of all let's take a look at the symbols:
° : degree
' : minute
' : second
1 minute is equal to 60 seconds.
1 degree is equal to 1 hour, that is equal to 60 minutes or 3600 seconds.
To calculate decimal degrees, we use the DMS to decimal degree formula below:
Decimal Degrees = degrees + (minutes/60) + (seconds/3600)

After hassling to look for a converter online I just noticed you had all the details here. Nice work!!2019-12-07 09:53:04
Nice implementation, thanks. Adding the formulas is very useful. Entering decimal values in Google Maps works, entering Hours, Minutes and seconds did not work. Using the symbols may be tricky: is seconds the quote sign ' or is it two apostrophes ' ?
I got an error message when I entered the seconds for Longitude with three decimals. When I removed the decimals, it worked. No problem with Latitude.
Reading the comments below, I see that other people had the same problem long ago. Someone at Latlong.net needs to update this website. Many good suggestions were made.
It does work in Degrees Minutes and Seconds in Google maps as long as you put the direction S or N for Latitude at the end of the coordinate or E or W for Longitude.2020-03-08 22:41:30
what could be the time in Lagos state at longitude 18 east when the time is 5:00pm in Ethiopia at longitude 45 east?2020-02-25 16:43:45
Please be aware the actual conversion numbers are accurate, but there is NO allowance for : EAST,west , NORTH, south -values here.
So to be accurate you may need to know when to apply a '-' minus sign in front of the decimal values. You need to know the general area where you are looking for. I ended up in China, where a Canadian address was intended ! other than that. It 's great ! DK.
The degree symbol is a small circle ( ° ) that is used to indicate the width of an angle or the value of a temperature .degree symbol
The uses of the degree symbol are as follows:
if placed after a natural number or a decimal number between 0 and 360 it indicates the width of an angle expressed in sexagesimal degrees .
In particular 0
(or better 0) is the width of a null angle , 90 ° the width of a right angle , 180 ° the width of a flat angle and with 360 ° the width of a corner angle .
If the degree symbol is followed by the letter C (° C) or the letter F (° F) then it indicates a temperature , expressed respectively in degrees centigrade and degrees Fahrenheit .
Recall that for the kelvin unit of measurement (symbol K) it is the only unit of measurement of temperature that does not require the symbol of degrees.
Please help me. I'm stuck with these 7 figure easting and northing coordinates and im failing to convert them into the appropriate directions.
I got theme from an old mining research paper. As a clue I know for a fact it's in my country[zimbabwe] . Problem is I dnt know where to put the degrees and minutes and all. Please help.

Useless, does not accept decimals in longitude seconds and, for unknown reason, copy & paste does not work2019-07-09 19:47:35
Output seems correct to me! Thanks, got me out of a jam.2019-07-08 00:29:35
I think your calculation is incorrect.2019-06-11 00:36:01
I think you're rounding too early. Redo your calculations but at each stage keep as many decimal places as you can before adding.
i.e. 52/60 = 0.86666666667
44.544/3600 = 0.0123733333333
Adding these two numbers will give you the 43.87904 this site and the other sites gave.
not working for me, I know I'm doing something wrong.
43 degrees 52 minutes and 44.544 seconds and this and other sites says it should be 43.87904
but when I do it I get the following:
52 minutes / 60 = .8666 round it to .87
44.544 seconds / 3600 = .012373
add them together and my calculation is 43.882373
Needs to handle fractional seconds in the conversion.2019-05-28 06:56:02

Hello everyone!!! I'm hoping you can help me convert this into a recognizable GPS coordinate. I have a data logger that is giving me the following Latitude 23617394 and Longitude -45043232 when I export the file. If I punch these into a GPS coordinates website, it takes me to the middle of the ocean so they are not correct.
I was told by the data logger vendor that I need to convert these numbers in order to convert the correct GPS coordinates. Well, what is the formula I need to use to accomplish this?
The final GPS coordinates I would end up with should be close to 39.3754992 , -75.0235886 which is NJMP in NJ.
How do I accomplish this?

Degree -> ° Minute -> ' Second -> ' N = '+' S = '-' E = '+' W = '-'
(Only '-' (minus) is written, '+' (plus) is skipped as in math, also don't need to divide by 1 ;-)
Formula: Decimal Degrees = (Degrees/1) + (Minutes/60) + (Seconds/3600)
Example: 52° 13′ 56″ N, 21° 0′ 30″ E
52° 13′ 56″ N -> (52/1) + (13/60) + (56/3600) = 52+0.2166666667+0.0155555556 = 52.232222 N become +
21° 0′ 30″ E -> (21/1) + (0/60) + (30/3600) = 21+0+0.0083333333 = 21.008333 E become +
52° 13′ 56″ N, 21° 0′ 30″ E = 52.232222, 21.008333
The input accepting seconds2 is missing the term 'step='0.0000001'. This prevents the field from accepting decimal/fractions of seconds.2018-12-14 23:28:04
I found this to be entirely inaccurate. I need to enter decimal seconds, but it will not allow. please fix.2018-12-12 05:55:14

Definitely agree John, too bad they don't teach how to manually convert into a unit of measurement that is by and large not used anymore aside from specific professions. Can't believe they do such ridiculous subjects like IT - when will THAT ever come in handy.

In your explanation you say one degree = one hour. Wrong! 15 degrees of longitude = one hour, 1 degree of longitude = 4 minutes. One degree of latitude = about 60 nautical miles or one minute = about 1 nautical mile.
Too bad they don't teach any of this stuff in school anymore.

How to change in coordinate from degree decimal
Why on earth are their so many fecking ways of writing down the same point on a map. After literally hours of trying dozens of various conversion tables, I still cannot work out how to convert 54.291244, -6.697948 to the way I normally use for my geocaching app which is something like N 54 00.000 W 006 00.000?
Why do we need so many ways of doing the exact same thing?
sure saved me a lot of trouble , easy to use and understand. glad it was on your web site. Any way we can get this conversion in an app form or a down load for the dumb phone I got? Or added to the lap top.2018-06-16 11:35:35
Thanks. Just now converted some locations from degree minute seconds to degree decimal.-->
Angular measurements are commonly expressed in units of degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS). One degree equals 60 minutes, and one minute equals 60 seconds. To simplify some mathematical calculations you may want to express angular measurements in degrees and decimal fractions of degrees.
This article contains a sample custom function you can use to convert a degree value stored in decimal format, to DMS stored in text format, and a sample function that converts DMS to a degree value stored in decimal format.

Converting Decimal Degrees to Degrees/Minutes/Seconds
The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications custom function accepts an angle formatted as a decimal value and converts it to a text value displayed in degrees, minutes, and seconds.
To use this function, create a conversion formula, as in the following example:
Start Excel and press ALT+F11 to start the Visual Basic editor.
On the Insert menu, click Module.
Enter the sample code for the Convert_Degree custom function described above into the module sheet.
Press ALT+F11 to return to excel.
In cell A1 type 10.46.
In cell A2 type the formula: =Convert_Degree(A1)
The formula returns 10°27'36'
Converting Degrees/Minutes/Seconds to Decimal Degrees
The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications custom function accepts a text string of degrees, minutes and seconds formatted in the exact same format that the Convert_Degree function returns (for example, 10° 27' 36') and converts it to an angle formatted as a decimal value. This is exactly the reverse of the Convert_Degree custom function.
This custom function fails if the Degree_Deg argument is not in the format
To use this function, create a conversion formula, as in the following example:
Start Excel and press ALT+F11 to start the Visual Basic Editor.
On the Insert menu, click Module.
Enter the sample code for the Convert_Decimal custom function described above into the module sheet.
Press ALT+F11 to return to excel.
In cell A1 type the following formula:
=Convert_Decimal('10° 27' 36'')
NOTE You are required to type three quotation marks ('') at the end of the argument of this formula to balance the quotation mark for the seconds and the quotation mark for the text string. A cell reference will not require a quotation mark.
The formula returns 10.46
