Calculates a decimal degree value from separate degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS) values, stored in attributes.
After connecting this transformer, choose the attribute that contains each of the degrees, minutes, and seconds attributes. The minutes and seconds values must always be positive.
If these parameters are contained in a single attribute, see Usage Notes below.
The name of the attribute used to store the calculated decimal degree value.
If the degrees/minutes/seconds are together in a single attribute, they can be parsed apart using the StringSearcher transformer.
For instance, if the attribute has the format:
the following regular expression could be used in the StringSearcher to parse it into a list attribute with three elements:
The three elements could then be exposed and used as input to this transformer.
