I would like to automatically convert from a Degree - minute - second system to WGS84 EPSG:32632. I have a CSV with these kind of values:

46°01’24,7” 11°13’47,5”
45°42’07,5” 10°55’11,3”
46°01’37,6” 11°06’41,7”
46°15’03,7” 11°11’00,1”

and I would like to automatically convert them. There is a way? They are a lot, if not I would do with a normal converter... I try to import them in QGIS (but only a few of them works) and export them in some way, but I sincerely do not understand how to. Any suggestion? Thanks!


If you are running QGIS 2.0.1, you can import the data as delimited text layer.

It offers you to select DMS Coordinates, comma as decimal separator and EPSG:4326 as CRS.

Once you have the data loaded, you can rightclick on the layer -> Save as and choose EPSG:32632 for the output file.
