Latitude, Longitude to DMS Converter

A free and great tool to convert Latitude and Longitude Coordinates (decimal degrees) into DMS (degress, minutes, and seconds.), You just need to enter your Lat. and Lon. values into the field and convert it instantly! This is useful for Navigators and Location enthusiast.

This allows conversions between the NAD83 / WGS84 coordinate system and the older NAD27 coordinate system. NAD27 coordinates are presently used for broadcast authorizations and applications.

Degrees, Minutes, and Seconds

Angular measurements are commonly conveyed in units of degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS). One degree is equals to 60 minutes, and one minute is equals 60 seconds. To cut down some mathematical calculations you may want to express angular measurements in degrees and decimal fractions of degrees. By preference, the positioning that we can find any location on Earth using latitude and longitude coordinates. And we measure those coordinates using degrees/minutes/seconds by using our tool.

GPS-Enabled Devices

To take advantage of the pinpoint accuracy of the GPS system, you need a GPS-enabled device. These devices communicate directly with the GPS satellites using low-powered radio waves. By communicating with at least three GPS satellites, a device is able to regulate one’s location at a time on the Earth with accuracy.
