When entering the coordinates also think of the place name

Let yourself be inspired by our pictures. Our example motifs show what the coordinates should look like.

Tip: If the coordinates are to designate a place or an entire city, it is sufficient to specify degrees ° and minutes', you can omit the digits behind.

In principle, of course, more precise coordinates (e.g. your own house) with seconds' and milliseconds' 'are also possible. However, you should make sure that the sequence of numbers does not become too long at the end. For production reasons, the wall sticker cannot exceed a certain width.

Format of coordinates explained:

▶ Be for the wall sticker geographic coordinates used, also known as GPS coordinates. This procedure is based on the graticule of the earth. This can be used to describe the position of any point on the earth's surface.

Any point on earth can be marked with pinpoint accuracy by recording the intersection of a degree of longitude and a degree of latitude at the corresponding point, namely in the form of the coordinates.

Latitude run horizontally around the earth and are denoted by N (northern latitude) or S (southern latitude). Degrees of longitude run perpendicular to it, quasi from top to bottom over the globe, and are given in E (eastern longitude) or W (western longitude).

▶ The coordinates are roughly divided into N (latitude) and E (longitude). To specify the position even more precisely, the units degrees (°), minutes (′) and seconds (″) are available.

The entire coordinate - e.g. 50 ° 56'29 "N 6 ° 57'30" E - marks the intersection of a longitude and a latitude at exactly one point. In our picture, for example, you can find the coordinates of Cologne Cathedral.

▶ If you are looking for the dates for Alexanderplatz in Berlin instead, you will find it just as much as someone looking for your own address, Cologne Cathedral, the stadium of your favorite club or another exact location.
