**How to Convert Latitude Degrees to Decimal Sciencing**

21/02/2010Â Â· Would you happen to know how to convert the -0.983 directly in terms of Pi, without using degrees at any point? I'm starting to recognise angles in decimal radians, so I figure it would be good to know (and understand) what they are in terms of Pi.... They are most commonly Degrees Minutes Seconds (DDD MM SS), Decimal Degrees (DDD.DDDD), or Degrees Decimal Minutes (DDD MM.MMM). The last format is the most common in current GPS models. The second one is the one we use in Custom POI files.

**ArcGIS Help 10.1 Converting degrees-minutes-seconds**

Convert latitude and longitude coordinates between Deg/Min/Sec, Degrees/Minutes, and Decimal Degrees.... just write a program that takes the decimal as an input, divides by pi, then use the (>Frac) command to output the fraction of pi. if you don't have enough decimals for the TI to convert it to a frac, it'll still display the fraction in decimal form, but the pi will have been divided out, so instead of .5235987756 you'd get .1666666667 which is easy to recognize as 1/6, just as .66666666667 is

**Decimal degrees Wikipedia**

When you work with degrees, you'll almost always be working with decimal degrees; that is, with degrees expressed as decimal numbers such as 43.1025Â°. But just as "1.75" hours can be expressed as " 1 hour and 45 minutes", so also "degrees" can be expressed in terms of smaller units.... Convert Coordinates to Decimal Degrees Google Earth can display coordinates in decimal degrees, DMS (degree minutes seconds), degrees decimal minutes, or UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator). While our systems can handle coordinates in either decimal degrees or DMS (we do not support UTM), we have found that setting Google Earth to decimal degrees reduces problems caused by â€¦

- Decimal degrees (DD) is a way of expressing latitude and longitude geographic coordinates as decimal fractions (e.g 54.135Â°) and an alternative to the more common format of Degreesâ€¦
- The first thing to understand is why radians are natural whereas degrees are artificial, related to the fact that the Babylonian number system was base 60 and our calendar has (about) 360 days in a solar year, surely side issues in a purely mathematical context.
- just write a program that takes the decimal as an input, divides by pi, then use the (>Frac) command to output the fraction of pi. if you don't have enough decimals for the TI to convert it to a frac, it'll still display the fraction in decimal form, but the pi will have been divided out, so instead of .5235987756 you'd get .1666666667 which is easy to recognize as 1/6, just as .66666666667 is
- Think of a clock. There are 60 minutes in an hour, and 60 seconds in a minute. If you want to convert 33 degrees, 33 minutes into a decimal number of degrees, convert this fraction to decimal degrees:
