This page accepts a wide variety of latitude/longitude and position formats.

Value Description
Latitude Latitude of point.  Google Earth uses the WGS84 geodetic datum.  Valid formats include:
  N43°38'19.39"
  43°38'19.39"N
  43 38 19.39
  43.63871944444445

If expressed in decimal form, northern latitudes are positive, southern latitudes are negative.
Longitude Longitude of point.  Valid formats include:
  W116°14'28.86"
  116°14'28.86"W
  -116 14 28.86
  -116.2413513485235

If expressed in decimal form, eastern longitudes are positive, western longitudes are negative.
Position The position of the icon, in a number of formats: LatLon, UTM, UPS, MGRS, MGRS Polar, USNG (identical to MGRS), Georef, and State Plane.

Used in place of Latitude and Longitude.

The following positions refer to 38° 57' 33.804" N, 95° 15' 55.739" W which is the default Google Earth starting point over Lawrence, Kansas, USA.

In the following table, "d" is used to mark degree digits, "m" for minutes, and "s" for seconds. For lat/lon, the letters "N, S, E, and W can come before or after the coordinates. So long as the coordinate can be understood, punctuation, spaces, and °'" are optional. Acceptable formats include:

State Plane United States State Plane coordinates.
Easting and Northing (X and Y) can be in Meters, US Survey Feet, or International Feet, where
1 US survey foot = 1200/3937 meters, and
1 international foot = 0.3048 meters

Our sample point, 38° 57' 33.804" N, 95° 15' 55.739" W, is located in Zone 1501, "Kansas North"
The position is specified as "Zone X Y" as follows:
1501 636973.515 73077.180 (meters is assumed)
1501 636973.515m 73077.180m (meters)
1501 2089808.121ftUS 239754.527ftUS (US Survey Feet)
1501 2089803.941ft 239754.048ft (International Feet)

Supported units of measure
m, or not specified Meters
USft, ftUS, sft, fts US Survey Feet
ft, ift, fti International Feet

X, Y, East, and North
By default, the X coordinate, or Easting is specified first and the Y coordinate, or Northing is specified second. However, the order can be reversed if coordinates are explicitly labeled. Example:
1501 2089808.121ftUS 239754.527ftUS Normal specification - Zone 1501 followed by Easting and Northing in US Survey Feet
1501 239754.527YftUS 2089808.121XftUS Order reversed, Y coordinate is first, X coordinate is second.
1501 239754.527NftUS 2089808.121EftUS Same coordinate, order reversed, Northing followed by Easting.
Maidenhead DM89UH44XQ69

An extended twelve-digit grid is supported.  The lowest level grid measures .125 seconds of longitude x .0625 seconds of latitude.

Note that UTM position "15S" is in the Northern hemisphere.  Earth Point uses the convention that the UTM Band letters C, D, E, F, G, H, J, K, L, M are in the southern hemisphere and N, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, X are in the northern hemisphere.  UPS letters A, B, Y, Z are also supported.

Georef is specified to .01 minutes, which is a lower resolution than the other systems. Thus, Georef cannot plot the default Google Earth location exactly. The next two points are the same, but they are about 14 meters southeast of the points above.
