The Federal Communications Commission, which is charged with regulating interstate and international communications, maintains the Degrees, Minutes, Seconds, and Decimal Degrees Latitude/ Longitude Conversions Web site. Users of the tool are able to easily convert latitude and longitude between decimal degrees, as well as degrees, minutes, and seconds, by typing in either of the known to get the unknown. This simple but helpful tool will surely save time for those working with these types of data. As an additional feature, the site also provides a link to the National Geodetic Survey's NADCON program, which allows conversions between the NAD83/ WGS84 coordinate system and the older NAD27 coordinate system.
