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}

Latitude

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.

  • 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 ;).

Not elegant, but:

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

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

  • I assume the \! command eats some space. Where is it defined?

    @bombcar Usually it is only available in math mode, but the memoir class defines it to be used in text as well.
