Dropdown Help: Latitude and Longitude

SummitPost requires coordinates in decimal degree notation (dd.dddd), not DMS (dd° mm' ss.sss'') or UTM. A decimal point (.) is required. Commas are deleted and result in incorrect coordinates. Objects in the western hemisphere must use negative longitudes. Recalculate the DMS-data (dd° mm' ss.sss'') with the following formula (only mm and ss have to be recalculated): dddd = (mm / 60) + (ss.sss / 3600).
