- Go to maps.google.com.
- Type out the coordinates into the search bar — using either the degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS) format, the degrees and decimal minutes (DMM) format, or decimal degrees (DD) format — then hit enter or click on the search icon.

- On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Maps app .
- In the search box, enter your coordinates. Here are examples of formats that work:

- Open Google Maps app on iPhone (it’s an additional separate download)
- Tap the “Search” bar and enter the GPS coordinates you’d like to search for, then search.
- Google Maps will render the GPS location on the map.

When outlining the coordinates of a location, the line of latitude is always given first followed by the line of longitude. Therefore, the coordinates of this location will be: **10°N latitude, 70°W longitude**. The line of latitude is read as 41 degrees (41°), 24 minutes (24′), 12.2 seconds (12.2”) north.
## How do you convert XY coordinates to latitude and longitude?

## How do you write coordinates?

This value is the scientifically derived value for radius of the earth. Calculate latitude and longitude using the formula: **latitude = asin (z/R) and longitude = atan2 (y,x).**

Coordinates are written as **(x, y)** meaning the point on the x axis is written first, followed by the point on the y axis. Some children may be taught to remember this with the phrase ‘along the corridor, up the stairs’, meaning that they should follow the x axis first and then the y.
## How do you enter latitude and longitude in Apple Maps?

## How do you find latitude and longitude on Google Maps?

**Open the Maps app**. Tap Search at the bottom of the screen. Enter the latitude and longitude coordinates in the search bar. Coordinates can be in decimal degree format or degrees, minutes, seconds.

Open ‘Google Maps’: Open maps.google.com in your browser. Click on the **search bar**: Now click on the search bar at the top left corner. Enter the latitude and coordinates: Now enter the latitude and longitude in Google maps.

Latitude and longitude are broken into **degrees, minutes, seconds and directions**, starting with latitude. For instance, an area with coordinates marked 41° 56′ 54.3732” N, 87° 39′ 19.2024” W would be read as 41 degrees, 56 minutes, 54.3732 seconds north; 87 degrees, 39 minutes, 19.2024 seconds west.

When taking a grid reference, **always read left to right along the bottom or top of the map first and then bottom to top along the side of the map**. This is particularly important in an emergency situation.

1 Answer. For coordinates captured using a GPS, or by any means, **longitude is the X value and latitude is the Y value**. These are for a geographic coordinate system and have units of degrees.

Go **to maps.google.com**. 2. Type out the coordinates into the search bar — using either the degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS) format, the degrees and decimal minutes (DMM) format, or decimal degrees (DD) format — then hit enter or click on the search icon.

Handy tip: when giving a co-ordinate, latitude (north or south**) always precedes longitude (east or west**). Latitude and longitude are divided in degrees (°), minutes (‘) and seconds (“).

Coordinates are **always written in brackets, with the two numbers separated by a comma**. Coordinates are ordered pairs of numbers; the first number number indicates the point on the x axis and the second the point on the y axis.

To view the GPS coordinates of any location, **tap and hold your finger on the screen to add a marker at the desired location**, swipe up on the information panel and you will be presented with the latitude and longitude of the location, among other information.
## What coordinate system does Apple Maps use?

## What is my latitude and longitude of my location?

By default, most GPS receivers and application software use **the Lat-Lon-Altitude (LLA) geographic coordinate system based on the WGS84 datum**. In this system, the horizontal positions are expressed in terms of angular measurements (degrees, minutes and seconds).

- On your iPhone or iPad, open the Google Maps app .
- Touch and hold an area of the map that isn’t labeled to drop a red pin.
- At the bottom, tap Dropped pin to find the coordinates.

Android: Open Google Maps; it will zoom to your approximate location. **Press and hold on the screen to drop** a pin marker. Click on the dropped pin; latitude and longitude will be displayed below the map.

Your iPhone includes a **GPS chip** like the one found in standalone GPS devices. The iPhone uses the GPS chip in conjunction with cellphone towers and Wi-Fi networks in a process called assisted GPS, which helps calculate the phone’s position.

- Find and tap your ‘Settings’ menu.
- Find and tap ‘Location’ – your phone may show ‘Location services’ or ‘Location access’ instead.
- Tap ‘Location’ on or off to enable or disable your phone’s GPS.

Answer: Therefore, the correct pronunciation was **My Ess-Cue-Ell**.

Hemisphere – one half of the planet Page 2 Latitude – **horizontal lines** on a map that run east and west. They measure north and south of the equator. Longitude – the vertical lines on a map that run north and south. They measure east and west of the Prime Meridian.

Longitude is the measurement east or west of the prime meridian. Longitude is measured by imaginary lines that run around **the Earth vertically** (up and down) and meet at the North and South Poles.

Each of the 360 lines is called a MERIDIAN or LINE OF LONGITUDE!” … Its longitude is ‘zero’ degrees. Then, going towards the east, the lines are numbered from **1 to 180 degrees**; going to the west, the lines are also numbered from 1 to 180 degrees, but going the other way.

Estimate or measure **how many tenths across the grid square** your symbol lies. Write this number after the first two digits. Next, estimate how many tenths up the grid square your symbol lies. Write this number after the last two digits. You now have a six figure grid reference.

- Select the cell you want to format for latitude or longitude.
- Press Ctrl+Shift+F or press Ctrl+1. …
- Make sure the Number tab is selected.
- In the categories list, choose Custom. …
- Place the insertion point in the Type box and erase whatever is there.
- Type three # signs.

To get the latitude of the address in cell B2, use the formula **= GetLatitude(B2)** To get the longitude of the address in cell B2, use the formula = GetLongitude(B2) To get both the latitude and longitude of the address in cell B2, use the formula = GetCoordinates(B2)
