The coordinates function or tag allows to transform coordinates in directional decimal degrees to the default target format for coordinates, i.e. to convert coordinates.

Use of the coordinates function[edit]

{{#coordinates:55.7557860° N, 37.6176330° W}}
{{#coordinates:location=55.7557860° N, 37.6176330° W}}

All result into: 55° 45' 20.83" N, 37° 37' 3.48" W

Coordinates in non-directional floats to directional degrees minutes seconds (DMS)
{{#coordinates:55.7557860, -37.6176330|format=dms|directional=yes}}
{{#coordinates:55.7557860, -37.6176330|dms|yes}}
{{#coordinates:55.7557860, -37.6176330|directional=yes|dms}}

All result into: 55° 45' 20.83" N, 37° 37' 3.48" W

Use of the coordinates tag[edit]

<coordinates format="dms">55.7557860, -37.6176330</coordinates>

Results into: 55° 45' 20.83" N, 37° 37' 3.48" W

<coordinates format="dd" directional="no">55.7557860, -37.6176330</coordinates>

Results into: 55.755786°, -37.617633°
