Converts a coordinate system notation string to a PointGeometry object in WGS84 coordinates.


To create a coordinate system notation string, use the PointGeometry object's toCoordString method.

ParamètreExplicationType de données

The input coordinates.


The coordinate system notation of the input string.

  • DD Decimal degrees. For example, 34.05719570N 117.19647020W
  • DDM Degrees decimal minutes. For example, 34 03.43174200N 117 11.78821200W

Exemple de code

FromCoordString example

Create a PointGeometry object from a United States National Grid string.

import arcpy
coord_string = '14S PB 59361 43195'
point_geometry = arcpy.FromCoordString(coord_string, 'USNG')
