Hi everyone,

I am looking for a Formula to convert Degrees Minutes Seconds (DMS) Geographic coordinates to Decimal Degrees (DD).

Right now I have one column lwith this format : 57°34’57.8"N 6°19’30.9"W
and I will need to split in two columns to have something like that :
57.582722
-6.325250

in order to use this mini estension : Embed Map of Airtable Records on Your Website(Embed Map of Airtable Records on Your Website - miniExtensions)

If anyone has done this, thank you in advance !

Did the parsing part, I assume you can take it from here, just clone this base and the formulas should all be in there.

Hi @Dominik_Bosnjak

Thanks a lot for your help !
Unfortunatly I can’t clone this base, I can only use the data without the formulas.
And I am not sure to get what you did.

I am trying to convert this georgraphic coordinate Field : 57°34’57.8"N 6°19’30.9"W
in two columns :
Longitude Field : 57.582722
Latitude Airtable Field : -6.325250

Thanks for having a look :slightly_smiling_face:

I… am not at my best at 4am in the morning, apparently. I’ve just published the whole thing to the Universe, so you should be able to pull it now.

Hi thanks :slightly_smiling_face:
But I’m not sure if this answers my problem. It should be a convertion and not just split the georgraphic coordinate and the format should be -6.325250

Thanks anyway for your help!
