Finding GPS coordinates with google maps. / 2 variants of mapping GPS..


I would like to recall briefly, how to use geographical coordinates. There are 2 forms (variants) of writing geographical coordinates. The first form of the writing is in degrees, the second one is in degrees minutes and seconds. For clarity, let’s see writing of both forms in google maps programm. If we click any place of map by right button of mouse, and select “What is it?” by left button of mouse, You will see the point on the map and first form of the writing is in degrees If to point cursor of mouse and push left button on this line… You will see increasing of masshtab. Google maps will lead you to this point… And you can see both variants of mapping/writing of geographic coordinates. Bottom line is writing of the geographic coordinates in degrees. The top line is the same but in degrees, minutes and seconds. You will see writing of the geographic coordinates in degrees on search line too. There are different tables and formulas to translate one mapping of the geographic coordinates to second one. I won’t detail and stop on it. My navigator and DVR show the first mapping (in degreese). Here it is.. I think that such form is convinient I don’t need to enter additional designations, like ( ” ) or ( ‘ ). I write down decimal simply. You see my video with coordinates in such form. Letters “N” and “E” are presented too. They mean north latitude and east longitude. In any moment of watching my video, you can get coordinates, enter them to your navigator or mobile phone or tablet or google maps program to find these places. I’ll show you, how to do it in Google maps program, for example. I’m deleting search line, for start and writing down decimal. 43. 899 385 coma followed by a space And second coordinate… 25. 994 664 If you enter coordinates such way, through coma and the space and push button of search , Google maps will show you point on the map. You will see both variants of mapping the same point on the screen The same way, you can enter coordinates, into your other gadgets. These coordinates led us to romanian city Giurgiu, border point between Romania and Bulgaria.
