I am designing a map in French where West is "Ouest", and thus the map should read
45°23′67′′O instead of
45°23′67′′W. I am using a version of QGIS in English (update: in the French version of QGIS, the default option is
O). I am currently using QGIS 2.18.11, but intend to switch to 3.0 soon.
1) Is there a way to change the longitude and latitude suffix to another language or just set a different letter?
2) Using the
custom option, how can I get the minutes and the seconds? I found an example here that gets me a decimal degrees version with my own suffix, but I would like to keep degrees, minutes, seconds format. If
@grid_number is degrees... what is the equivalent for minutes and seconds?
abs(format_number( @grid_number ,2)) || ' °' || CASE WHEN @grid_axis = 'x' THEN IF (@grid_number > 0, 'E' , 'O') ELSE IF (@grid_number > 0, 'N' , 'S') END
