GPS Latitude and Longitude Distance Calculator
This converter requires the use of JavaScript enabled and capable browsers.
It is designed to convert the two different and distinct methods of coordinate nomenclature from one
methodology to the other, and to calculate the distance between two sets of coordinates. Due to the fact
that GPS information is so readily available now for daily weather information, automotive use, aviation,
marine and personal use, many companies have set their own standards as to how that information is
displayed and disseminated.
Either method is very accurate in the native form but converting between them can create substantial error. When using a hand held GPS for instance, you may have to use the information and convert it to or from what a GIS map displays. We have created this converter and calculator to take decimal degrees or degrees and decimal minutes, and convert to the other. In order to establish a point, you MUST have latitude and longitude coordinates in one form or the other. You must enter both points to get a distance calculation. If you need to get that information to a degrees, minutes and seconds format, use the GPS Converter. The distance calculations and bearing are based on a true spherical model. The different latitude and longitude formats are as follows:
