    I've got a question.

    These here numbers-->375144E and 3010557N

    were on file on my computer. I and a few other suspect them to be GPS coordinates. However, they have an uneven number of figures(6 and 7...I was told that they should have the same number).

    The question I'm asking is if anyone is able to figure if this is correct...and if it is then where this would place you(should put you somewhere in FL)...and how to convert it to a different format(degree/min/sec or decimal degrees).

    This is obviously way out of my grasp but if anyone here happens to know I would be very grateful.

    Dude, if they are coordinates, it's somewhere in Jordan.

    LOL Exactly what I was thinking. I think it is something to deal with the constant again as the person who I've been talking with said.

    "We don't like Westing and Southing in our coordinates as that means we have to work with negative numbers...so after addiong the constant Westing becomes Easting and Southing Northing"

    Actually in any format the easting westing should have one more digit then northing/southing.

    With out any decimals or seperators it is just a guessing game as to what format they are in now.

    * = degree for lack of a degree key on the keyboard

    DMS format is

    N/S xx* xx' xx.xx"
    W/E xxx* xx' xx.xx"

    DD format is

    N/S xx.xxxxxx
    W/E xxx.xxxxxx

    Degree Minute format is

    N/S xx* xx.xxx'
    W/E xxx* xx.xxx'

    A coordinate is a coordinate. Westing and southing only cause problems when working with bearings. And if it was a bearing it would be in a format such as:

    N 22* 14' 36" E
    or
    S 67* 23" 56" W
    etc.
