I am attempting to plot coordinates I obtained on the Nara National Research Institute for Cultural Properties, or Nabunken, website in QGIS. They have a archaeological site search page (http://mokuren.nabunken.go.jp/Iseki/index.html), and they list coordinates for the sites. After putting together a group of sites, I noticed that their positions were all off. I tried inputting the coordinates in Google Earth as well and had the same issue. They all seem to be off by a similar amount, about 30-35km south and 20-25km east of where they should be.
For an easy example the coordinates listed for the Sannai Maruyama site are 40.4845, 140.4158, but bringing up the site on Google Earth gives me coordinates of 40.811062, 140.695648. The website only lists that the coordinates are WGS.
Any ideas of what might be going on?
Here is a copy of the data sheet I am getting the point coordinates from.
The coordinates are circled and the WGS designation title is underlined. One additional bit of possibly useful information is that there are no decimals included for the Sannai Maruyama site coordinates, so the original data shows 404845, 1404158 and on other sites I have only seen decimals before the last 2 numbers, so for another specific section of the site they have the location listed as 404849.6, 1404207.3 .
