I have a three different cell arrays for my DMS (degree, minute, second). I want to combine it into one cell into the DMS format (degree°minute'second"). The second(") data is a decimal number while degree and minutes are integers.
I have a data of like this:
Degrees (19x1) = 128
128 ......
Minutes (19x1) = 34
32....
Seconds (19x1)= 14.651
40.654
How can I combine this three cell arrays into a form such that:
128°34'14.651"
128°32'40.654"
this is what I want to be the result.
