The convention is latitude first then longitude. In most cases a letter will follow the numbers, i.e. the first number which is the latitude is followed by N or S, while the second number which is the longitude is followed by E or W.

Hope this helps.

What Customers are Saying:

My Expert answered my question promptly and he resolved the issue totally. This is a great service. I am so glad I found it I will definitely use the service again if needed.

One Happy Customer, New York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RP, Austin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
