- Decimal Degrees (DD)
An alternate method to the more familiar Degrees-Minutes-Seconds of expressing latitude and longitude. You can use either Degrees-Minutes-Seconds or DD to enter your location, if you are entering your lat/long directly.
- Degrees-Minutes-Seconds (DMS)
A method of expressing latitude and longitude. One degree is roughly equivalent to 72 miles, one minute is roughly equivalent to 1.2 miles, and one second is roughly equivalent to 100 feet. You can use either Decimal Degrees or DMS to enter your location, if you are entering your lat/long directly.
Can I enter data using Latitude and Longitude?
