App Store Description

LatLonger quickly converts latitude and longitude from degrees, minutes and seconds to decimal degrees and back and instantly displays those coordinates on a map.

Why You Need LatLonger

Latitude and longitude can be specified in either the traditional format of degrees, minutes and seconds; or in the newer format of decimal degrees. Most popular map websites use the format of decimal degrees.
- If you key traditionally formatted geo-coordinates into popular map websites without converting them, the wrong location will display.
- Even if you perform the math calculation yourself, you would then need to key in that calculation to display the location on a popular map website.
Lat-Longer does all that for you on one ingenious screen.

Additional Use for PC Photography!

Have you ever taken photos with your iPhone® but can’t remember the location? If you turned on Location Services, the latitude and longitude of each photo is collected and stored in the GPS metadata. When viewing the photos on the PC, the metadata are found in Properties > Details > GPS. However, the format used by the PC is degrees, minutes and seconds. LatLonger calculates to decimal degree format — and displays it for you on a map. You easily see the correct location of your photo.

Easy to Use

1. Start LatLonger.

To Convert to decimal notation:

2. Type in the latitude and longitude using separate fields for degrees, minutes and seconds in the fields toward the top. Degrees and minutes will always be whole numbers. Seconds can be entered with a decimal point if necessary.
3. Press the N or S button to specify whether the coordinate is North or South latitude; press the W or E button to specify West or East longitude. (LatLonger defaults to North latitude and West longitude, suitable for the North American continent.)
4. Press "To Decimal". The geo-coordinates are displayed in decimal degrees, and it is simultaneously mapped if a network is available.

To Convert from decimal notation:

2. Type in the latitude and longitude using decimal notation in the fields toward the bottom.

4. Press "From Decimal". The geo-coordinates are displayed in degrees minutes and seconds, and it is simultaneously mapped if a network is available.

5. You may zoom in or zoom out on the map.
