A library for parsing ISO6709 format Degree Minute Second style coordinates.

Project description

ISO 6709

This is a package for converting ISO6709 formatted strings into decimal representation.


This library supports the following DMS formats:

  • ±DD.DDDD±DDD.DDDD/ - Latitude and Longitude in Degrees
  • ±DDMM.MMMM±DDDMM.MMMM/ - Latitude and Longitude in Degrees and Minutes
  • ±DDMMSS.SSSS±DDDMMSS.SSSS/ - Latitude and Longitude in Degrees, Minutes and Seconds

As well as the standard altitude/height suffix: ±AAAA


>>> from iso6709 import Location
>>> loc = Location('+27.5916+086.5640+8850/') # Mount Everest
>>> print (, loc.lng.degrees, loc.alt
27.5916 86.5640 8850
