-*  The latitude and longitude needs to be converted to decimal degrees for locfinder. For example, the AMG coordinates for my house at lat. -37° 50' 43.53603" and long. 145° 5' 31.85668" need to be converted to lat. -37.8454° and long. 145.0922°. Many scientific and engineering calculators have an hours.minutes.seconds-to-hours (decimal) function which can do this. Otherwise, do the following steps. 
-## Divide the decimal seconds by 60 to convert them to decimal minutes, and add them to the whole number of minutes. For example, for lat. -37° 50' 43.53603", do 43.53603 / 60 = 0.7256; 50 + 0.7256 = 50.7256 decimal minutes. For long. 145° 5' 31.85668", do 31.85668 / 60 = 0.5309; 5 + 0.5309 = 5.5309. 
-## Divide the decimal minutes by 60 to convert them to decimal degrees, and add them to the ABSOLUTE whole number of degrees, then apply the correct sign.
