A Django template filter for displaying longitude and latitude in degrees-minutes-seconds notation

Project description


django-dms is a Django template filter for displaying decimal degrees of angles (longitude and latitude) in the Degrees-Minutes-Seconds notation.

It contains the filters longitude and latitude. They both take a number as input and convert it into a DMS value. The filter longitude accepts any number between -180 and 180, the filter latitude accepts any number between -90 and 90. If the input value is not a number or is a number outside the before mentioned ranges respectively, then the input is displayed without any change and the filters don’t have any effect.

In your templates you can use the template filters like this:

{% load dms %}
{{ 38.8897|latitude }}

The output will be:

38° 53' 23" N
