Lat Long conversion from DMS to Decimal

Lat Long conversion from DMS to Decimal

Hello EMu Users,

NMNH has been requesting / begging KE to increase the precision at which they are calculating the decimal degree value from an entered DMS latitude or longitude value for a very long time. It was requested by KE for us to get a larger body of approval for this change in conversion philosophy. We finally did this at the October 2006 North America EMu Users Group meeting. The group we presented this to and obtained approval from was the Natural History EMu users group.

I then dropped the ball on this and failed to get a summary of those changes to the group. I have rectified that today and also wanted the larger EMu community as a whole to see as well. Hence my submission here.

If you have any questions or comments please don't hesitate to contact me.

Cheers,
Beth :-)
