Dear Brad, you said:
The modest fun begins when converting from decimal degrees back to D.M.S., insuring the proper use of truncation, floor, integer and rounding functions such that the result is proper for both positive and negative angles. Modest fun is the appropriate phrase! It's just tricky enough to require some thought, yet not so difficult as to require deep thought.
I'd be glad to learn more about exactly that - the decimal-to-DMS convertion. I'm having some difficulties at guessing the proper start of the procedure.
Thank you in advance.
