Entering GPS Coordinates

If you have GPS coordinates you can enter them into the Manual Coordinates
box when adding a trap, bait station, monitoring station . You then need to click the “Find using Coordinates
field” button to place the location on the map before saving the trap or station.

Note that the coordinates must be in decimal Lat, Long. ​E.g:
​-41.545769706106, 172.15099409223

Or in NZTM format (New Zealand Transverse Mercator). E.g:
1763693.1614139 5459118.2077669

If the coordinates are in another format or projection then you will need to convert them first.

Linz have a handy converter here:

For example - If your coordinates are in Degrees Decimal Minutes (DDM) e.g:
172 03.4 E 41 20.8 S

Then you will need to convert them to Decimal Degrees (DD) first:
