What is DMS?

DMS is the abbreviation for Degrees Minutes Seconds. Degrees minutes seconds (DMS) are special type of units used for measuring angles, as an alternative to decimal way to stating the size of an angle. It is a known fact that there are 360 degrees in a whole circle, with 1/60th of those being 1 minute, and 1/60th of one minute being 1 second. DMS includes degrees (°), minutes ('), seconds (''), with the corresponding symbols, and a size of any angle can be stated like, for example, 30 degrees, 10 minutes, 50 seconds.

The numerical values for latitude and longitude in decimal number format are:
° for degrees, ' for minutes and '' for seconds.

The common abbreviations of the directions:

You can also get the lat long and the DMS values by clicking on the map.

World Geodetic System WGS84 standard is used on this latitude and longitude to DMS converter.

Brilliant! My 'Good Launch Guide' (boats not rockets!) only gives decimal locations - and my SatNav only accepts DMS, so at last I have a workable solution.

Thought this would be great for my job (fire service dispatcher) but needs DMS entry.

As an avid hunter in Alberta Canada we are given a description of WMU boundaries. Transposing these on to a larger map is a challenge. Using google map I'm not able to orientate myself with roads, cut lines etc.
Any ideas?:)

This is very cool. I was able to convert and locate where we are headed. The ability to move the mouse to a spot on the map and have Lat/Lon show up is also neat. Thanks for a great tool.

Good one-way conversion. Wish I could reverse the inputs, DMS fields allow no entry.
