Declaration:function GeoLatitude (InNum: double; Format: TDegreeFormat; Precision: integer): string;

The function GeoLatitude converts a decimal geographic latitude value contained in InNum into a string based on degrees, minutes and seconds. InNum make take values between -90 (degrees south) and +90 (degrees north); any values beyond this range are automatically set to the nearest limit. The parameter Format determines which format is used. The parameter Precision specifies the number of decimal places.

The following example shows the results of calling "GeoLatitude (-13.562, Format, 3)" using the three possible formats:

dfDeg 13.562 S
dfDegMin 13 31.560' S
dfDegMinSec 13 31' 33.600" S
