Hi

Please could some one help me, I have received a parking ticket, the picture used as evidence was taken from a mobile unit. On the picture sent to me as evidence there are co ordinates but when I convert these co ordinates and input into google earth, it is no where near where the infringement allegedly took place.

The co ordinates on the image are as below

lat 51.5037850 lon -0.5421438 E

Could some one please confirm what the exact location of these co ordinates are, it is supposed to be in Langley in Slough but I am getting East London in the mouth of the Thames ???

Thanks

To enter this onto google maps, put the following into the search bar

51.5037850, -0.5421438

It's showing as Meadfield Rd in Langley, Slough. For the latitude, negative numbers are east of Greenwich and positive ones are west. Your minus sign and "E" don't make sense together.

Reading my post back, I got east and west the wrong way around. East is positive and west is negative numbers.

D'oh!
