Q GIS – Coordinates

When I tried to add a coordinate file in QGIS I realized that this program do not read degrees, minutes, seconds Coordinates (41° 00′ 18.48″ N, 87° 40′ 52.57″ W) therefore, it have to be converted into GPS Coordinates (41.003519, 87.791722)

Here is some Links that can help you:

Find Latitude and Longitude                                                                                            Convert Lat/Lon (option1)                                                                                              Convert Lat/Lon (option2)

Additionally, The link below is a tutorial about: How to Create a Shapefile from XY coordinate data using QGIS.                                                                                                 XY coordinate data to shapefile
