Correct co-ordinates.

Postby Harric1955 » Mon Sep 18, 2017 6:58 am

I get an error message flashing on CUMULUS because I have not got Longitude or Latitude coordinates inserted.
My coordinates are:
52.18.12.21 N -Latitude
0.35.43.42 W - Longitude

My problem is that there are only 3 cells to input these coordinates when in fact I need 4 cells. Something has to go. How should I input these numbers.

Thanks for your help.

Read the Cumulus FAQ (link top-right) and the section titled My sunrise and sunset times are wrong
Cheers,

I'm familiar with quite a few co-ordinate formats, but I've never seen a.b.c.d before. if that's actually degrees, minutes and seconds, and decimal seconds, then you'll just need to drop the last number. If that isn't what it is, doing that will get you in the wrong place, though.
