SPOT uses the Global Positioning System datum: World Geodetic System 84, or WGS 84, expressed in the decimal degrees coordinate format. For example, SPOT headquarters in Covington, LA would appear as Latitude 30.43312 and Longitude -90.08694. To convert your SPOT decimal degree coordinates into degrees, minutes, seconds use the conversion calculator on FCC.gov (http://transition.fcc.gov/mb/audio/bickel/DDDMMSS-decimal.html).
