Are the coordinates longitude and latitude? Would someone actually enter 
these or are they coming from a GPS file?

You need to treat the coordinates as strings.

You can create these strings if you enter degrees, minutes, seconds as 
numbers - see the Q&A on the list about creating ID numbers recently. If 
the coordinates come from a GPS, just keep them as strings.
