Using map coordiantes



  • Re: Find location by its coordinates
    I have been trying to put coordinates in the search bar and I seem to always get strange results. Usually the coordinates are in the middle of an ocean somewhere.I use this to follow off shore races like the Volvo Ocean Race. (which I am also playing)
    As an example I enter " 26°49'40"N 131°55'22"E " and I end up in Algeria, when it should be southeast of Okinawa. I use this format because it is a simple cut and paste. Any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    try 26° 49' 40" N 131° 55' 22" E (with spaces between degrees, minutes, seconds)

    When I copied the coordinators you typed in it worked but not if I cut and paste it from the program I am using. If I right click on 25°57'29"N 134°15'50"E and search Google it finds the right place and gives me the coordinators in a decimal format. ( 25.991111, 134.193056) If I put this in to windy I get the correct result..It is almost like Windy gets confused if there is not a land mass involved.
    I will keep playing with it
    Thanks
