I'm just wanting to find out if QGIS has a setting to measure angles (using the measurement tool) in Degrees Minutes Seconds. Similarly, if one could input Degrees Minutes Seconds using the CAD Tools toolbar?

I am using QGis 3.0

Not sure if I'm just missing a setting somewhere, but I can't seem to find it.

Measurement tool units settings are available under Settings menu > Options > Map tools. The options for angle units are:

  • Degrees
  • Radians
  • Gons/gradians
  • Minutes of arc
  • Seconds of arc
  • Turns/revolutions

Degrees Minutes Seconds isn't one of the options.

You can request this feature be added to the next version of QGIS.
