Tips for formatting your coordinates

Here are some tips for formatting your coordinates so they work on Google Maps:

  • Use the degree symbol instead of “d”.
  • Use periods as decimals, not commas.
    Incorrect: 41,40338, 2,17403. Correct: 41.40338, 2.17403.
  • List your latitude coordinates before longitude coordinates.
  • Check that the first number in your latitude coordinate is between -90 and 90 and the first number in your longitude coordinate is between -180 and 180.
