In a table, I am listing several coordinates. I want to use a number format such as this

W 95°13'14''

W 95°03'00''


I am using the \ang{} environment of the siunitx package.

However, there seems to be no control over the number format when e.g. W 94°02'09'', then W\ang{94;02;09} produces W94°2'9'' i.e. eliminates automatically the zeros in the decade positions.

Is there a way to define a number format?


You have to use the right option, either locally:


or globally:

    Or doing \newcommand{\latitude}[2]{#1\ang[minimum-integer-digits=2]{#2}}, then typing \latitude{W}{94;2;9} – egreg Feb 5 '13 at 14:47
  • (just btw: West and East prefixes refer to the longitude and N and S to latitude) – Paglia Orba Feb 5 '13 at 15:51
