# FromDMS

 FromDMSconverts from degrees, minutes, and seconds to decimal degrees. FromDMSconverts from a DMS string to decimal degrees. FromDMSconverts from a latitude-longitude string to latitude and longitude in decimal degrees.
• FromDMS supports all common DMS string formats, with delimiters such as , , , and , , .
• FromDMS allows strings containing cardinal directions N, , E, . N and E give positive angles; and give negative angles.
• FromDMS supports latitude-longitude formats, with or without cardinal directions explicitly specified.
• Results in decimal degrees can be converted to radians by multiplying by Degree.
