    Location object: what to do with returned values?

    I am "successfully" receiving values for Long, Lat, Alt. However, these values do not resemble actual GPS coordinates at all.

    Well it says it's
    in the form of a floating point number
    , maybe that has something to do with it?

    A floating point number just means the decimal point can move

    can't find much information on this, need sum help here.

    does anyone know what is the lowest & highest values the Latitude & Longitude numbers can be?

    trying to find out wat the values are at one corner of the earth & at the other corner (& yes, i know the world is round )

    thanx

    I have a guess what this might be for

    afaik, in geography they are both expressed in degrees and range from 0 to +/-90░ (latitude) or +/-180░ (longitude)
    I would assume the location object does the same?

    for latitude, 0 is the Equator, 90 the north pole, -90 the south pole
    (Y coordinates on a 2D map)

    for longitude, 0 is Greenwich, +90 around Thailand, -90 around Guatemala, +/-180 somewhere in the Pacific ocean
    (X coordinates on a 2D map)

    hovering the map here gives a visual catch of this on a "unwrapped" 2D map:
    https://mynasadata.larc.nasa.gov/lat...gitude-finder/

    so I would guess the lowest X value should be -180, the lowest Y -90
    and opposite signs should be the "highest"
