Entering coordinates of longitude and latitude

Enter degrees and minutes or degrees only, with positive or negative decimal numbers. You can find and enter latitude position in terms of north and south or positive and negative north. A negative value is negative north or positive south. Likewise you can find and enter longitude position in terms of east and west or positive and negative east.

  • latitude 45° 31' north and longitude 122° 41' west or
