Measurement Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Convert Decimal Degrees to Degrees, Minutes, Seconds (DMS)

How can I convert from decimal degrees (as in, "degrees of longitude" or "degrees of latitude") to degrees, minutes, and seconds, or vice versa?  How can I convert from fractional hours to hours, minutes, and seconds, or vice versa?

There is a formula for this and we hope to provide a separate calculator for this conversion in the near future.
