Anyone like to answer my stupid question?
Sorry, I forgot your question.
Not quite sure I understand what you mean? You just wanna take the coordinates and put them into google earth yourself?
Let's take this picture as an example:
Coordinates from picture:
Unfortunately there is more than one standard when it comes to GPS-coordinates. Some of them are:
In this case only the last coordinates differ from the way it's shown in google earth. The last 4 numbers (2295 and 3435) is decimal, where as it's minutes or seconds in google earth. That means, that you need to convert the coordinates.
2295 * (60/100) = 1377
3435 * (60/100) = 2061
Write this directly into google earth, and you will see the position of my plane in that picture.
56° 01' 13.77", 12° 29' 20.61"
