    There are different formats.

    Degrees, minutes, seconds

    or

    Degrees, decimal degrees.

    Are two popular formats.

    Minutes and seconds are a little old fashioned, I prefer to use decimals.

    Wikipedia gives them as "44°16′14.98″N 71°18′12.54″W". Whether or not that's accurate, I don't know.

    Unless you are coming from Toronto. Then it is south and east.
