I am using both QGIS 1.8 and 2.0. So either is helpful.
A client has given me locations of trial pits but i cannot load them into QGIS no matter how hard i try.
For example, 50°24.711 North 7°25.529 West. The site is near Enniskillen Co. Fermanagh Northern Ireland. Any system i can find to convert degrees minutes and seconds will not allow 24.711, and seconds only go to 60.
