# FromDMS

 FromDMS[{d, m, s}]converts from degrees, minutes and seconds to decimal degrees. FromDMS["dms"]converts from a DMS string to decimal degrees. FromDMS["latlong"]converts from a latitude-longitude string to latitude and longitude in decimal degrees.
• FromDMS["dms"] supports all common DMS string formats, with delimiters such as °, ', ", and d, m, s.
• FromDMS["dms"] allows strings containing cardinal directions N, S, E, W. N and E give positive angles; S and W give negative angles.
• FromDMS["latlong"] supports latitude-longitude formats, with or without cardinal directions explicitly specified.
• Results in decimal degrees can be converted to radians by multiplying by Degree.
