Degrees  Minutes  Seconds angle calculator
This calculator is used to add and subtract angles in the form Degrees  Minutes  Seconds (DMS).
Each degree is divided into 60 minutes, and each minute further divided into 60 seconds.
This form is used in astronomy and defining latitude and longitude.
Example 34° 24' 16''
This is read as "34 degrees 24 minutes 16 seconds".
Instructions
The calculator adds or subtracts input values from the running total in the top window.
 Enter a value in three parts: the degrees in left field, minutes in the middle, and seconds in the right field.
 Press "enter" to enter the input value into the running total, replacing what was there.
 OR: Press either the Plus or Minus button to add/subtract it from the running total.
 Negative inputs should have a minus sign in front of the degrees: 12° 23' 31''
 Small negative numbers (less than one degree) are entered with 0 in the degrees field:
Example: 0° 23' 0''
Automatic conversion to decimal degrees
Whenever a result is calculated it is also converted to decimal degrees. This is displayed just below the result window

... I have a small favor to ask. Over the years we have used advertising to support the site so it can remain free for everyone.
However, advertising revenue is falling and I have always hated the ads. So, would you go to Patreon and become a patron of the site?
When we reach the goal I will remove all advertising from the site.
It only takes a minute and any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for considering it! – John Page
