Hi all,

I am building a property portal and I want to use the geonames data.

http://www.spanishpropertymagazine.com/geo_select.php

The lat lon data is often in the format of ?

380.666.667 46.666.667

How can I convert this to a standard decimal format as used by google maps?

is this DMS format??

Thanks

Will

The geonames coordinates are in WGS84 (=googlemaps format). There is something wrong with your import script. Did you process it with excel or something similar?

Best
