# Geographic coordinates converter

Geographic coordinates serve as a unique address for any point on the Earth's surface. However, sometimes working with different coordinate formats requires an understanding of the peculiarities and methods of conversion.

## Geographic Coordinate Formats

**DD (Decimal Degrees):**A simple format representing degrees in decimal form. For example, Latitude 40.7128, Longitude -74.0060 for New York.**DMS (Degrees, Minutes, Seconds):**This format represents coordinates in degrees, minutes, and seconds. For example, Latitude 40° 42' 46" N, Longitude 74° 0' 22" W for New York.

## DD to DMS Conversion

The following formula is used to convert from DD to DMS:

D = ⌊ DD ⌋

M = ⌊ (DD - D) × 60 ⌋

S = (DD - D - M/60) × 3600

Where:

- DD - Decimal Degrees.
- D - Degrees in DMS.
- M - Minutes in DMS.
- S - Seconds in DMS.

## Conversion Example

Let's assume we have a coordinate in DD format: 34.0522. Let's perform the conversion:

D = 34°

M = 3'

S = 8.1''

Thus, 34.0522 DD is equivalent to 34° 3' 8.1'' DMS.
