- What's your flavor?
- Degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS): Example = 41°24'12.2"N 2°10'26.5"E
- Degrees and decimal minutes (DMM): Example = 41 24.2028, 2 10.4418
- Decimal degrees (DD): Example = 41.40338, 2.17403
I've often wondered if the DD method is generally accepted in the overland community just through osmosis or if there's been somewhat of an official edict declared by the Overland King who said, "By royal decree, and in order to unite all of the people throughout the land; all terrestrial explorers in the Kingdom of Overlandia shall henceforth use decimal minutes. Dilly Dilly!"
