Background

GPS coordinates as used at Geocaching.com can be represented in different ways. The notation uses N (North) or S (South) to denote latitude and E (East) or W (West) to denote longitude. Furthermore are these coordinates shown as degrees and decimal minutes. However, there are more ways to express them. If N, S, E and W is not shown, N and E are positive values and S and W negative values. Furthermore the next three notations are possible with: ° the degrees symbol, ' the minutes symbol and '' the seconds symbol. There are 60 minutes in one degree and 60 seconds in one minute.
