    Default How to convert GPS coordinates format.

    I am in process of plotting route through Damaraland. All coordinates are given as S21 00'51 E14 27'28. Now I have other coordinates given as S26.911 E13.627. How do I convert this to read like the previous format ? I am using Base Camp.

    any help will be appreciated.

    Zorba,

    Can't you just put the info into Basecamp in the first format, then in the settings change to the second "other" format and then just enter them ?

    I think this is what you looking for ?
    In Map Source - Edit, Preferences, Position.
    Base Map should be pretty similar.
    This will 'switch' the display of co-ordinates on your map from current system to the chosen one.

    As Andy said. In Basecamp go to Edit. Select Options. At the bottom of the Measurements tab change Grid to the format you need. Change back after marking your waypoint etc.

    If you then close Basecamp and start it again all you waypoints will be in the format that you last used.

    Thanks to all who replied. I found the solution in the Edit section of BaseCamp.

    You can also enter them in Google earth, in whatever format. It will convert them automatically to the format you define under Tools/Options

    You do not need to enter the degree and minute symbols. Just leave spaces for these. eg in dms simply enter eg -dd mm ss.ss, for decimal degrees, dd mm.mmm and dd.ddddd for decimal degrees

    S26.911

    0.911*60/100 = 54.66

    66 * 60 /100

    39.6

    South 26 degrees, 54 minutes and 39.6 seconds

    Do the same for E13.627

    Chrisph, dankie wou nou net vra hoekom convert hulle dit nie gou self nie, doen dit so nou en dan sommer met foon se calculator en stukkie papier... Nou laai hulle aps af ens... Hoe gaan jy dit in die bos doen?
