Convert Lat and Long to DMS

Welcome to our online Lat Long to DMS converter. Here, you can make the mentioned conversions easily and in no time. To convert decimal coordinates to degrees minutes seconds (DMS), all you need to do is enter the latitude and longitude values, and press 'Convert' button.

Convert DMS to Decimal Degrees
S: South, W: West, E: East, N: North

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.

Very profesional website that i can use with my car camera gps coordinates.
I must say that this map from OpenStreetMap is more accurate than google maps.

Excellent Tool! I use this site to convert Lat Long positions I get on Google Maps to DMS to enter into my handheld GPS I use for camping. Thank you for maintaining this site. It is very useful!

Really usefull for Sea Rescue Groups as they tend to use Decimal values.

I have used this website a couple of times when my drone went down. And, always useful for finding fishing spots and places that I need to get back to for photography in a different season. For example, my Sony A77 II grabs a very precise Lat / Long coordinate so I can go back in the Autumn to photograph the color changes on the trees. Thanks!

Why can't we just get the latitude and longitude in DMS instead of having to convert it?

Chiefy321 2020-04-15 19:59:28

Your Tool Converts 2.9 degrees latitude to 2° 53' 60'' N
But as 60" = 1' it should read 2° 54' 0'' N

I have 26degree NE ,what will be the longitude and latitude

2
Henry the Navigator 2021-02-10 13:18:07

26 degrees NW sounds like a compass bearing and not a position in terms of Lat and Long

Bernito 2020-01-31 05:59:58

I have these coordinates: Y 14 764.72 X 2 669 029.58
Y 14 854.02 X 2 669 372.16
How do I convert these to DMS?

Riyaj lavange 2020-02-10 08:13:03

Y axis means longitude and X axis means latitude

Edwin 2020-01-23 10:16:42

Can you help me to convert 29.17983*E and 23.56970* to Degrees, minutes and seconds(DMS).

Hi everybody,
I saw this question repeat without no answer.
How do I convert this coordinates ...
use these code:
if(bitSizeof(lat)+bitSizeof(lon)==35)
divisor = 600.0
else if(bitSizeof(lat)+bitSizeof(lon)==49)
divisor = 60000.0
else if(bitSizeof(lat)+bitSizeof(lon)==55)
divisor = 600000.0

lon = lon / divisor
lat = lat/ divisor

Jack 2020-05-29 14:06:25

what is the implementation of bitSizeof() method

Gelma Boru 2019-12-12 08:55:41

it is very useful and important!! I really Check it taking GPS location of one area!!

Possible to know mathematical formula to convert decimal degrees to DMS. Your solution is incomplete.
Formula?

Great teaching tool - very quick too. I just linked back to this page from our summary page for The Isle of Wight - visit it at https://theisleofwight.org/iow/ (Thanks, my hope is that it will encourage our readers to visit this online resource)

In regard to Bob’s comment on 8/31/19, simply put a negative sign in front of any decimal for west longitude (e.g. -77.000000 = 77 deg 0 min 0.0 sec W)

Bob 2019-08-31 23:12:07

Works great but result assumed E when it should have be W.

Do you have a manual method of doing this, using pencil on paper?

YuJi 2019-08-16 15:00:42

How do I convert these please:
Northern extent: 394,302 E & 5,313,288 N
