Does anyone have the URL of a good coordinate conversion tool?  I am tired of using the calculator.  Going from DM.m to DMS to decimal degrees...arrgh!  Anybody?  I tried writing my own in Excel, but I want it to be a bit more portable than that.



Thank you

GeoCalc is quite handy. It is a nice little (244 kb) stand alone. It also projects waypoints and calculates distances between points.

In case you want to get points from a map to load into your GPSr this is very handy tool for capturing points in a variety of coordinate formats and exporting to text, gpx, shp, or kml.

It is even relatively intuitive.
