How do I know when to add the negative sign, as the site only returns positive numbers.

 

Thanks

The rest is done with the geographic direction. :smile: Lat N/S, Lon E/W. The site just returns the numbers itself. Maybe this helps with the +/- setup.

I enter 41 12 36.61 (N) 123 6 37.76 (w)

 

Result is 41.210169 123.110489

 

So the question is, Is W and S always negative?

 

Sorry, I did not see your map. That helps.

 

Thanks

Yes. Think of the Cartesian coordinate system if it helps.
