Hello Community,

First of all i would like to apologise for my lack on educational matters relating to the mapping skills (haha).

I had a Message saying a ship had been under attack and gave me co-ordinates 50.56N - 04.47W

My question is how would i work this out?

I will be very much thankful if someone with patience could explain.

Cheers.

First, Welcome to the SH Forums.

I'm not as well versed about Lat and Long as I could be, but on the Navigation map (in SH3, I believe the key is F5), you'll notice across the top and the left side there are numbers. These represent the latitude and longitudes on the map. Play with the numbers (you can also zoom in and out using the scroll bar on your mouse) and the numbers will change.
