Details In the field of angle, "unit m" or "minute" is a unit of measurement to express angles in a sexagesimal system or degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS). One minute (symbolized as 1') is equal to 1/60 of a degree or 60 seconds. It is mainly used in navigation, astronomy, and cartography to represent angles such as latitude, longitude, and celestial coordinates. For example, an angle of 45 degrees, 30 minutes would be written as 45°30'.
