Degrees, Minutes And Seconds To
Decimal Degrees And Radians Calculator

This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. Enter the degrees in the valid range of 0 to 360 degrees, (0 and 360 being the same direction), minutes in 0 to 60 and seconds in 0 to 60. The answers returned are decimal degrees, the degrees based on the factors of minutes and seconds, and also in radians. To convert decimal form to degrees/minutes/seconds, take the decimal part of the coordinate and multiply by 60 to get the minutes. Take the decimal part of the minutes and multiply by 60, round to the nearest integer. This gives you seconds. Remember that one minute of latitude is one nautical mile (one nautical mile is equal to 6080 feet, one statute mile is equal to 5280 feet). Minutes of longitude are less, becoming smaller the further from the equator. Various sources don't always agree on figures, and GPS receiver results are usually different from any of them.
