`"Deg" = f( "DMS" )`

Enter a value for all fields

The **Degrees/Minutes/Seconds to Decimal Degrees** calculator converts a degrees, minutes and seconds into a single value of decimal degrees.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Enter the following:

- [
**Degrees**][**Minutes**][**Seconds**]

**Decimal Degrees:** The calculator returns the number of degrees. However, this can be automatically converted into other angle units via the pull-down menu.

Degrees can always be, and in the contemporary world usually are, specified as decimal degrees. An alternative representation of latitude and longitude are still used which sub-divides a degree into 60 minutes and a minute into 60 seconds. Thus in this representation a second is `1/3600`th of a degree and `1/60`th of a minute. In turn a minute is `1/60`th of a degree.

If you enter 5 in the degrees input field and 30 in the minutes input field and leave the seconds input field its default 0, then this equation will show the result as:

`"Degrees" = 5.5^o` = 5 Deg + `30/60` Deg
