[RESOLVED] Longitude and Latitude query
« on: February 05, 2017, 10:09:19 AM »
Hi folks, i am trying to get this right, problem is, same input, different output

On the Davis console i am putting in Lat 52.4 and Long 0.6    for this 52.463480, 0.613722
In WD i get Lat 52.01.80 and Long 1.17.80

In WD one (os station) i enter
52 27' 48 N
0 36' 49 E
and get lat 052.27.48 and  long -000.36.49

I aint got a clue, baffled as hell lol

Bashy there are two ways o expressing latitude and longitude, the Decimal way such as 52.4 or the degrees minutes and seconds way (known as DMS) like 52 23 60 so you can do this the easy way at http://www.latlong.net/lat-long-dms.html. Your 0.6 comes out as 0 36 0.

Well I dont remember what I did originally it's so long ago (2005) but I believe you can manually enter the correct values in WD so I'm not sure what the problem is.

Hi,
as console sunrise/set times are calculated form lat/long it must be related to those settings. What are the values? If the sunrise is an hour later and sunset an hour earlier that means the latitude may be wrong i.e further north at this time of year. Or is the date wrong on the console?
