Default ISO Information

Anybody have a link to a good website that explains all the in's and out's of GPS coordinates? There seem to be several ways to express location values and it isn't clear to me how to tell one from another, or how to convert. Got to be something like that out there that you have used successfully?

All kinds of stuff is available on the inner web.

For instance

Latitude/longitude coordinates were around long before GPS was a gleam is some guys eye. Helps to search on lat/long without bringing up GPS. Technically I suppose they are not GPS coordinates, they are latitude/longitude coordinates, or better still geographic coordinates.
