Sorry to ask such a simple question over geo net, but here it goes. I'm working with ESRI Sample stream layers for geo event server, sample layer here: WorldSatellites (StreamServer) 

 

If you go to the sample satellite stream it has a field for speed and the speed is shown as "Speed = 5.57459006297416e-9" I have no idea what measure the speed is in (nothing on the site explains it). Anyway I'm trying to convert it to miles per hour.

 

1. What speed is being displayed

2. How do I convert it to miles per hour or even kilometers per hour.

 

Thanks for any help for this satellites newbie
