Hi all,

 

I reckon I have lots of gaps about carthography but normally I do not struggle too much in converting coordinates.

I have to plot some coordinates in ARCGIS.

 

They are in the format below:

 

43°31.4, 1°46.4

First of all if I tried to add a point (using Go to XY tool) into GIS just to see where these coordinates are it show them in the wrong place.

 

Normally when I want to convert coordinates in easting and northing to be able to plot them in GIS I do:

 

(min/60)+degree

If I do the above conversion it gives me the metres and if I plot them in GIS they are shown exactly where the other "Go to XY" shows me.

That is why I believe my conversion is ok.

What should the problem be?

 

I am really confused and I do not know any other trick to make the job

 

Many thanks

 

F
