Example: North 47.018711° | East 12.34256°

Introduction:

The latitude input is a decimal number between -89.999999 and 89.999999.

If the latitude is given in S as south, the number must be preceded by a minus sign.

The longitude input is a decimal number between -179.999999 and 179.9999999.

If the longitude is given in W as west, the number must be preceded by a minus sign.

If these thresholds are not maintained with input, the box will turn red and/or the fields will remain blank.

**Decimalgrad**(WGS84)

Lat: °(N) Watch where you go!

Since this converter calculates with negative North values instead of positive South values, you must prefix your value with a - if it contains the S specification.

So from 10.12345 S this becomes -10.12345 N!Length: °(MI) Watch where you go!

Since this converter calculates with negative sunrise values instead of positive west values, put a - in front of your value if it contains the W specification.

So from 20.12345 W this becomes -20.12345 E!

Example: North 47°1.122 | East 12° 20.553'

The latitude input must be between -89 and 89 and must be an integer.

Longitude input must be between -179 and 179 and must be an integer.

Entering minutes for latitude and longitude is an optional decimal number, but if entered, must be between 0 and 59.99999.

If these limits are not met, the box will turn red or the fields will remain empty.

**Practical degrees**(WGS84)

Lat: °'(N) Warning!!!!

Since this converter calculates with negative North values instead of positive South values, add a - in front of your degree value if it contains the S specification.

So 10° 1.2345' S becomes here -10° 1.2345' N!Length: °'(MI) Warning!!!!

Since this converter calculates with negative sunrise values instead of positive west values, put a - in front of your character value if it contains the W specification.

So from 20° 1.2345' W this becomes -20° 1.2345' E!

Example: North 47° 1' 7.359' | East 12° 20' 33.216'

The latitude input must be between -89 and 89 and must be an integer.

Longitude input must be between -179 and 179 and must be an integer.

Minutes input for latitude and longitude must be between 0 and 59 and must be an integer.

Entering seconds for latitude and longitude is optional, but if done, must be between 0 and 59.99999.

If these limits are not met during the import, the box will turn red or the fields will remain empty.

**Degrees Minutes Seconds**(WGS84)

Lat: ° ""(N) Warning!!!!

Since this converter calculates with negative North values instead of positive South values, you must add a - to your grade value if it contains the S specification.

So from 10° 1' 2.345' S this becomes -10° 1' 2.345' N!Length: ° ""(MI) Warning!!!!

Since this converter calculates with negative sunrise values instead of positive west values, put a - in front of your character value if it contains the W specification.

So from 20° 1' 2.345'? W becomes here -20° 1' 2.345' E!

Example: E (East) = 2783009 | N (north) = 1223568

Since these coordinates are only used in Switzerland and Liechtenstein, limit values apply to N and E.

The northernmost point is about 47.8 degrees and therefore the maximum value for N is 1,300,000.

The southernmost point is about 45.8 degrees, so the minimum value for N is 1,074,000.

The easternmost point is about 10.5 degrees and therefore the maximum for A is 2,834,000.

The westernmost point is about 5.9 degrees, so the minimum value for E is 2,484,000.

If these limits are not met, the box will turn red or the fields will remain blank.

**CH1903+ / LV95**(Bessel 1841)

And e) x: (N)

Example: Zone 32U | Eastern value 691831 | North price 5337164

The zone defines the rough location of the point and should prevent confusion.

Valid zone values are from 01A-60X, but without O and I.

Eastern values should be between 100,000 and 900,000.

Nord values must be between 1 and 9,999,999.

If these thresholds are not reached during entry, the box will turn red or the fields will remain blank.

The zone letter is automatically corrected if entered incorrectly.

**UTM coordinates**(WGS84)

Z: E: N:

Example: Zone 32U | Plan square PU | Eastern value 91831 | Nordpris 37164

The zone defines the rough location of the point and should prevent confusion.

Valid zone values are from 01A-60X, but without O and I.

The grid square defines the position in the zone and consists of the eastern value (A-Z without O and I) and the northern value (A-V without O and I).

East values must be between 1 and 99,999. Missing digits are filled in on the back.

Nord values must be between 1 and 99,999. The missing digits are located on the back.

Values below 10,000 must be padded with leading zeros so that the two numbers are 5 digits each.

If these thresholds are not reached during entry, the box will turn red or the fields will remain blank.

The zone letter is automatically corrected if the entry is incorrect.

**MGRS / UTMREF**(WGS84)

Z: E: N:

Example: R (right value) = 4468298 | H (high value) = 5333791

Since the underlying ellipsoid for these coordinates is only used in Germany, limit values for R and H apply.

The northernmost point is about 56 degrees, and therefore the maximum value for H is 6200000.

The southernmost point is about 46 degrees, so the minimum value for H is 5000000.

The westernmost point is about 5 degrees, so the maximum value for R is 5700000.

The easternmost point is about 16 degrees, so the minimum value for R is 2400000.

If these limits are not met, the box will turn red or the fields will remain blank.
