217
      By default, the map display shows the cursors position in decimal degrees since this is the prefered format for many GPS/GIS applications. However, there may be cases where you need to report coordinates as degrees minutes-seconds. To do so, go into you skins spatial configuration file (usually ${skin.dir}/spatial/config.xml) and edit the CursorTrack widget as shown below:
218
       <pre> 
219
        &lt;CursorTrack id="cursorTrack"&gt;
220
          &lt;mouseHandler&gt;mainMap&lt;/mouseHandler&gt;
221
          &lt;showDMS&gt;true&lt;/showDMS&gt;
222
          &lt;showLatLong&gt;true&lt;/showLatLong&gt;
223
        &lt;/CursorTrack&gt;
