# Typesetting longitude or latitude followed by a comma

How do you typeset a latitude followed by a comma? Using siunitx it looks like there's too much space:

\documentclass[12pt]{memoir}
\usepackage{siunitx}

\begin{document}
At the latitude \ang{30;30;30}, we saw a cat.
\end{document}


Is there a standard way to tighten that up?

• This one's 'not my fault': you'll see the same with simply $$30''$$, as it comes down to kerning or otherwise between the glyphs. – Joseph Wright Mar 12 '14 at 20:12
• Ah, I was't really thinking that the siunitx package was causing the problem, though I was kind of hoping that it had \latitude{30}\degrees\north\by\north\west or something ;). – bombcar Mar 12 '14 at 21:11

\documentclass[12pt]{memoir}

• I assume the \! command eats some space. Where is it defined? – bombcar Mar 12 '14 at 21:12
• @bombcar Usually it is only available in math mode, but the memoir class defines it to be used in text as well. – pst Mar 23 '14 at 20:37
