Convert Degrees Minutes Seconds to Decimal UDF

By Neil Jacobson,

I wrote this function to work with my sp_EarthDistance stored procedure.
It converts the regular degrees/minutes/seconds representation of angles to a decimal number.

Remember to use '' instead of ' within a string to be treated a character and not an end quote.

Sydney location    151¦12'0 "E               33¦52'0 "S
and in decimal       151.2             -33.87

SELECT [master].[dbo].[udfDegMinSecToDecimal]('151¦12''0 "E'), [master].[dbo].[udfDegMinSecToDecimal]('33¦52''0 "S')
