GC Easy Coordinate Entry

A script to simplify entry of coordinates for new geocaches on Geocaching.com, by letting you paste in coordinates from other sources in a single operation.

This userscript adds an extra input field to the forms for reporting new geocaches and geocache waypoints. If you paste in the coordinates to that field, then hit the "Fill" button, it will automatically fill in the North/South, East/West, and degrees, minutes and seconds fields for you.

Supported coordinate formats:

  • Decimal degrees: e.g. 51.17886,-1.82624
  • DMS: e.g. N 51° 10.732′ W 001° 49.574′ or N51 10.732 W1 49.574

Thanks to OusKonNé for the suggestion for this script
