**geographic coordinate system**is a**coordinate system**associated with positions on Earth. A GCS can give positions: as spherical**coordinate system**using latitude, longitude, and elevation; as map**coordinates**projected onto the plane, possibly including elevation; as earth-centered, earth-fixed**Cartesian coordinates**in 3-space; as a set of numbers, letters or symbols forming a**geocode**. In**geodetic coordinates**and map**coordinates**, the coordinate tuple is decomposed such that one of the numbers repA geographical coordinate system is a coordinate system. This means that

**every place can be specified by a set of three numbers**,**called coordinates**. A full circle can be divided into 360 degrees (or 360°); this was first done by the Babylonians; Ancient Greeks, like Ptolemy later extended the theory. Today, degrees are divided further.In

For more information, see Geographic coordinate system.**Printed maps display coordinates plotted to the datum selected by the mapmakers**. In the UK (which uses OSGB36), Ireland, France and Germany, these datum will not be the coordinates used in Wikipedia (WGS84) thus leading to differences of over 100m.

**coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified in three coordinates**,**using mainly a spherical coordinate system**. What does "mainly" mean here? The article on Spherical coordinate system says that a geographic coordinate system is different than a spherical one.- Overview

**geographic coordinate**systems is made necessary by the different**geographic coordinate**systems in use across the world and over time.**Coordinate**conversion is composed of a number of different types of conversion: format change of**geographic**coordinates, conversion of**coordinate**systems, or transformation to different geodetic datums.**Geographic coordinate**conversion has applications in cartography, surveying, navigation and**geographic**information systems.Informally, specifying a geographic location usually means giving the location's latitude and longitude. The numerical values for latitude and longitude can occur in a number of different units or formats: sexagesimal degree: degrees, minutes, and seconds: 40° 26′ 46″ N 79° 58′ 56″ W degrees and decimal minutes: 40° 26.767′ N 79° 58.933′ W decimal degrees: 40.446° N 79.982° W There are 60 minutes in a degree and 60 seconds in a minute. Therefore, to convert from a degrees ...

**coordinate system**conversion is a conversion from one**coordinate system**to another, with both**coordinate**systems based on the same geodetic datum. Common conversion tasks include conversion between geodetic and ECEF coordinates and conversion from one type of map projection to another.Transformations among datums can be accomplished in a number of ways. There are transformations that directly convert geodetic coordinates from one datum to another. There are more indirect transforms that convert from geodetic coordinates to ECEF coordinates, transform the ECEF coordinates from one datum to the another, then transform ECEF coordinates of the new datum back to geodetic coordinates. There are also grid-based transformations that directly transform from one pair to another pair.
