Is there a way of creating an equal geographic coordinate grid interval in QGIS print composer? I tried editing the interval and offset but it does not give equal interval like 121°14'0" then 121°14'15" and then 121°14'30" and so on.

Attached below is an image I layout with some details.

    It'll help to use correct interval for 15" = 0.004166666666666. You're currently using the equivalent of 9". – mkennedy Sep 29 at 18:09
  • Thank you very much, it solved my query. Is there a computation for the different interval or list for different interval to be use? – KCP Sep 30 at 14:01
  • It looks like you need to use decimal degrees, so if you want an interval in seconds divide by 3600 (# of secs in a degree). – mkennedy Sep 30 at 14:09
  • Thank you very much. It really helped. – KCP Sep 30 at 14:25
