**Converting from decimal degrees to DMS on 49G+**I have searched the newsgroup archives, and the user's manual for the
49G+ but I can't find any explanation for how to convert from degrees,
minutes, and seconds to decimal degrees and vice versa. There are
plenty of articles about how to do it on the 48G's, but none for the
49G+. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance,

**Re: Converting Latitude/Longitude (decimal degrees) to Bearing? #3 1563858**Hi
Here's a little SAS example to calculate both the bearing and the
distance between two points. It's a bit long-winded for illustration
purposes. I got a lot of help from this web site:
http://www.movable-type.co.uk/scripts/latlong.html
There are two different distance calculation techniques used and either
works for me. I don't claim to understand how any of this works; I just
have this in my SAS toolbox. There are many online discussions out
there if you're interested. It seems to depend on the degree of
accuracy you need. And if you need distance in kilometers, ch...

**degree converter**I am looking for a tool to convert between different degree formats
used in GPS systems.
For instance:
DD MM SS.SS (degrees, minutes, seconds) to DD MM.MMMM (degrees,
minutes) or
DD MM.MMMM (degrees, minutes) to DD.DDDD (decimal degrees)
There are some examples on the internet where format conversions can
be done, e.g.
<http://www.geology.enr.state.nc.us/gis/latlon.html>
<http://www.cosports.com/tools/gps_coords.htm>
....but of course doing it directly in Matlab would be easier.
Does anybody have such a script?

Try going to the "variable view" tag.
- Identify the row where your string variable is.
- Under the column "type", click and open a menu
- Check "Date"
- In the selection list, choose dd-mmm-yyyy hh:mm:ss
That should do the job.

**converting HH:MM to a decimal**I have 3 pairs of time in/out (24 our clock) that I need to calculate
the decimal equivalent of the total time worked for that day.
example: time in/out 08:00 10:00, 10:15 12:45, 13:45 16:50

Don't believe there's a builtin in function/constant but since it's
simply 180 degrees--> pi radians a simple one-liner would do it. It's
convenient that pi is a supplied constant in that regard.
