## How do you convert GPS coordinates to decimal degrees?

Decimal degrees = Degrees + (Minutes/60) + (Seconds/3600)

- First, convert minutes and seconds to their degree equivalents and add the results. 25’/60 = 0.4167° 30″/3600 = .0083°
- Then, add this number to the number of degrees. 39° + 0.425° = 39.425°
- So, the final result is: 39° 25′ 30″ = 39.425°

**How do you convert UTM Lat to long?**

How to transform UTM to LAT LONG using Transformation

- Select input / output spatial references.
- Input coordinates using decimal format.
- Click on the ‘Transform’ button to get the result.
- Your coordinates will be converted using the output spatial reference.

**How do you calculate UTM coordinates?**

Here’s How:

- UTM zones are all 6 degrees wide and increase from west to east starting at the -180 degree mark.
- Calculate the eastern boundary of any UTM zone by multiplying the zone number by 6 and subtracting 180.
- Subtract 6 degrees to obtain the western boundary.

### Is latitude from north to south?

While lines of latitude run across a map east-west, the latitude indicates the north-south position of a point on earth. Lines of latitude start at 0 degrees at the equator and end at 90 degrees at the North and South Poles (for a total to 180 degrees of latitude).

**What is UTM grid system?**

The Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) is a map projection system for assigning coordinates to locations on the surface of the Earth. Like the traditional method of latitude and longitude, it is a horizontal position representation, which means it ignores altitude and treats the earth as a perfect ellipsoid.

**How do I convert WGS84 to UTM?**

How to transform WGS84 to UTM using Transformation

- Select input / output spatial references.
- Input coordinates using decimal format.
- Click on the ‘Transform’ button to get the result.
- Your coordinates will be converted using the output spatial reference.

#### How do you convert decimal degrees to degrees minutes seconds?

How to Convert Decimal Degrees to DMS

- For the degrees use the whole number part of the decimal.
- For the minutes multiply the remaining decimal by 60. Use the whole number part of the answer as minutes.
- For the seconds multiply the new remaining decimal by 60.

**What is UTM Northing and Easting?**

The UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) coordinate system divides the world into sixty north-south zones, each 6 degrees of longitude wide. Within each zone, coordinates are measured as northings and eastings in meters. The northing values are measured from zero at the equator in a northerly direction.

**What is Zone UTM?**

The UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) coordinate system divides the world into sixty north-south zones, each 6 degrees of longitude wide. UTM zones are numbered consecutively beginning with Zone 1, which includes the westernmost point of Alaska, and progress eastward to Zone 19, which includes Maine.

## What distance is 1 degree of latitude?

69 miles

One degree of latitude equals approximately 364,000 feet (69 miles), one minute equals 6,068 feet (1.15 miles), and one-second equals 101 feet. One-degree of longitude equals 288,200 feet (54.6 miles), one minute equals 4,800 feet (0.91 mile), and one second equals 80 feet.

**What is the 90 degree south line of latitude?**

South Pole

The latitude of the North Pole is 90 degrees N, and the latitude of the South Pole is 90 degrees S.
