## Lab 2 : Part 3 - What do the coordinates correspond to ?

Hi,

In the lab handout for part 3, it is written in the description of the json file :

"a tuple of "coordinates" corresponding respectively to its longitude and latitude."

But the given values are of the sort : "coordinates": [

-73946939,

40729851

].

What is the unit exactly ?

Since normally, longitude and latitudes are angles, I'm not sure how to decipher such big values. Should I decompose them into angle, minutes, seconds ?

Thank you very much

This might give you an idea:
