Example: North 47.018711° | East 12.34256°

Input:

The latitude input is a decimal number between -89.999999 and 89.999999.

If latitude is given in S as in south, the number here must be preceded by a minus.

The longitude input is a decimal number between -179.999999 and 179.9999999.

If the longitude is given in W as in West, the number here must be preceded by a minus sign.

If these limits are not respected during entry, the frame will turn red or the fields will remain empty.

**Decimal degree**(WGS84)

Lat: °(N) Watch out!

Since this converter uses negative north values instead of positive south values, you must prefix your value with a - if it contains an S - prefix.

So 10.12345 S becomes -10.12345 N here!Lon: °(E) Watch out!

Since this converter uses negative east values instead of positive west values, prefix your value with a - if it contains the specification W.

So 20.12345 W becomes -20.12345 E here!

Example: North 47°1.122 | East 12° 20.553'.

The latitude input must be between -89 and 89 and must be an integer.

The longitude input must be between -179 and 179 and must be an integer.

The minutes entry for latitude and longitude is an optional decimal number, but when entered it must be between 0 and 59.99999.

If these limits are not respected during the entry, the frame will turn red or the fields will remain empty.

**Degree Minutes**(WGS84)

Lat: ° '(N) Watch out!

Since this converter uses negative north values instead of positive south values, prefix your degree value with a - if it contains an S.

So 10° 1.2345' S becomes -10° 1.2345' N!Lon: ° '(E) Watch out!

Since this converter uses negative east values instead of positive west values, prefix your degree value with a - if it contains the specification W.

So 20° 1.2345' W becomes -20° 1.2345' E!

Example: North 47° 1' 7.359' | East 12° 20' 33.216''.

The latitude input must be between -89 and 89 and must be an integer.

The longitude input must be between -179 and 179 and must be an integer.

The minutes input for latitude and longitude must be between 0 and 59 and must be an integer.

Entering the seconds for latitude and longitude is optional, but must be between 0 and 59.99999.

If these limits are not respected during the entry, the frame will turn red or the fields will remain empty.

**Degrees Minutes Seconds**(WGS84)

Lat: ° ' "(N) Watch out!

Since this converter uses negative north values instead of positive south values, prefix your degree value with a - if it contains an S.

So 10° 1' 2.345' S becomes -10° 1' 2.345' N!Lon: ° ' "(E) Watch out!

Since this converter uses negative east values instead of positive west values, prefix your degree value with a - if it contains the specification W.

So from 20° 1' 2.345'; W becomes -20° 1' 2.345' E!

Example: E (East) = 2783009 | N (North) = 1223568

Since these coordinates are only used in Switzerland and Liechtenstein, the limits for N and E apply.

The northernmost point is at about 47.8 degrees and therefore the maximum value for N is 1,300,000.

The southernmost point is at about 45.8 degrees and therefore the minimum value for N is 1,074,000.

The easternmost point is at about 10.5 degrees and thus the maximum value for E: 2,834,000.

The westernmost point is at about 5.9 degrees and thus the minimum value for E: 2,484,000.

If these limits are not met when entering data, the frame turns red or the fields remain empty.

**CH1903+ / LV95**(Bessel 1841)

and: (E) x: (N)

Example: Zone 32U | 691831 | north 5337164

The zone determines the rough position of the point and is intended to avoid confusion.

Valid zone values are from 01A-60X, but without O and I.

The eastern values should be between 100,000 and 900,000.

The values must be between 1 and 9,999,999.

If these limits are not respected during the entry, the frame turns red or the fields remain empty.

The letter of the zone is automatically corrected if the input is incorrect.

**UTM coordinates**(WGS84)

Z: E: N:

Example: Zone 32U | grid square PU | eastern 91831 | north 37164

The zone determines the rough position of the point and is intended to avoid confusion.

Valid zone values are from 01A-60X, but without O and I.

The grid square determines the position in the zone and consists of keys (A-Z without O and I) and nothing (A-V without O and I).

East values must be between 1 and 99,999. Missing numbers are filled in at the back.

North values must be between 1 and 99,999. Missing digits are filled in at the back.

Values below 10,000 must be filled with zeros on the front so that the two numbers are 5 digits long each.

If these limits are not respected during entry, the frame will turn red or the fields will remain empty.

The letter of the zone is automatically corrected if the input is incorrect.

**MGRS / UTMREF**(WGS84)

Z: E: N:

Example: R (legal value) = 4468298 | H (high value) = 5333791

Since the underlying ellipsoid for these coordinates is only used in Germany, there are bounds for R and H.

The northernmost point is at about 56 degrees and therefore the maximum value for H is: 6200000

The southernmost point is about 46 degrees, making the minimum value for H: 5000000.

The westernmost point is at about 5 degrees and thus the maximum value for R: 5700000.

The easternmost point is at about 16 degrees, making the minimum value for R: 2400000.

If these limits are not met when entering data, the frame turns red or the fields remain empty.

The difference is that **WGS 84 is a geographic coordinate system, and UTM is a projected coordinate system**. Geographic coordinate systems are based on a spheroid and utilize angular units (degrees).

**What coordinate system does WGS84 use? ›**

The Global Positioning System uses the **World Geodetic System** (WGS84) as its reference coordinate system. It consists of a reference ellipsoid, a standard coordinate system, altitude data, and a geoid. Similar to the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83), it uses the Earth's center mass as the coordinate origin.

WGS84 is defined and maintained by the United States National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). It is consistent, to about 1cm, with the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF). **It is a global datum**, which means that coordinates change over time for objects which are fixed in the ground.
