I am going around in circles trying to find work out where some photos were taken. This one should be a cafe somewhere around Glenelg in SA.

If anyone can help me translate I'd very grateful

I didn't fine tune it, but Google Earth has the co-ordinates somewhere down near South Brighton.

Do you mean understand the format given? If so, 35, 1, 15.63 is 35 degrees, 1 minute, 15.63 seconds south and 138, 31, 23.77 is same D,M, S east for longitude.

Grovelling apologies if that's not what you meant!

Thanks to @RooFlyer for the info (I even had to PM him to follow up with another possible dumb question) so now all sorted.

I worked out an easier way - I use Directory Opus and in there you can right click and open in Google maps - winner!!

What I found out when I looked at my own iPics is that the lats are positive numbers in both the northern and southern hemisphere, which is odd. The repeated zeros in the middle of the long decimal minutes in VPS's example are always either repeated zeros or nines, and then the end digits differ. So the end digits seem to mean something different, not just the end of the 'decimal minutes' number.

Here's one in New York:

Here's one near my place:

Anyone understand the 0s, 9s and the end numbers? And how does it tell northern from southern hemisphere?

Is that the camera program? Sony has one which brings your pics up on Google maps - actually in 3D- they 'point' the right way!
No it's a commercial program that I bought that I use all the time. It's great for reducing the size of photos and renumbering. There are a heap of features that I don't even know how to use

So you find the photo and then right click Locate on Google - it says Google earth but I changed it so it's Google

And I'd be interested to know that as well
