Convert DMS to Decimal Degrees

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.

Would anyone know how to convert this coordinate into degrees, minutes, seconds, but its actually only the seconds that have stumped me because the gps unit I have only needs 3 numbers with no decimal to enter in the seconds, but these have 4 numbers that come off another gps with a decimal, so if someone can help me with the formula to convert these coordinates that would be appreciated
s 33 37 58.20
e 114 27 49.32

Thanks Michael

If I am entering the decimal to convert over, and I have a negative number does that just change north to south and east to west?

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.

I'm using Google map to get my way point 31.755901, -88.085170. I am using Garmin, but my Garmin needs six number before the period on the longitude (Example W0 123456.7). What I am getting is 88° 5' 6.612'' W, four numbers before the period. It shows the correct place on your Convert Lat and Long to DMS but the Longitude will not go in my Garmin with four numbers. It has to have six. Can you help?

Gilbert, I pasted your Botswanan coordinates into the webpage and this was the result.

21° 35' 43.8'' S, 26° 35' 45.24'' E

FJmama1 2017-10-12 15:05:29

DD to DMS calculation example:
5.23456° (DD)
5.23456 - 5 = 023456° (you have suntracted your whole number)
0.23456 x 60' = 14.0736° (14 is your whole minute)
0.736 x 60" = 4.416° (this is your seconds)
DMS is now 5°14'4.416"

Brian 2017-09-25 22:28:39

A very good page. Very helpful. Now I guess someone needs to create a page the describes the difference between a question and a comment!

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.

Chris 2015-08-26 00:19:11

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?:)
