Degrees, Minutes, Seconds to/from Decimal Degrees

This tool permits the user to convert latitude and longitude between decimal degrees and degrees, minutes, and seconds.  For convenience, a link is included to the National Geodetic Survey’s NADCON program, which allows conversions between the NAD83 / WGS84 coordinate system and the older NAD27 coordinate system.  NAD27 coordinates are presently used for broadcast authorizations and applications.

This tool requires that Javascript be enabled to perform the calculations.
