This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Display GPS coordinates with more precision

It would be very useful if Lightroom could display the latitude and longitude of photos in (a) degrees-minutes-seconds, as it does now, (b) degrees and decimal minutes, and (c) decimal degrees. Unfortunately, all three are in general use, and there are good reasons to favor one over another in different situations. This could be a preference, and change both the value shown in the metadata panel, as well as the values exported when latitude or longitude is included in the file name.

And I suspect that most of Lightroom's users outside of the antiquarian United States would love to show altitude in meters and not feet.

Last time I checked, altitude units were based on OS regional settings, just like the date format automatically switches round too.
