# Python | Convert location coordinates to tuple

• Last Updated : 29 Apr, 2022

Sometimes, while working with locations, we need a lot of data which has location points in form of latitudes and longitudes. These can be in form of a string and we desire to get tuple versions of same. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 :

Using tuple() + float() + split() + map() The combination of above functions can be used to perform this task. In this, we first split the two parts of coordinates into a list, apply float function to each of them using float() and map() and lastly it is converted to tuple using tuple().

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Convert location coordinates to tuple``# Using tuple() + float() + split() + map()` `# Initializing string``test_str ``=` `"``44.6463``, ``-``49.583``"` `# printing original string``print``("The original string ``is` `: " ``+` `str``(test_str))` `# Convert location coordinates to tuple``# Using tuple() + float() + split() + map()``res ``=` `tuple``(``map``(``float``, test_str.split(``', '``)))` `# printing result``print``("The coordinates after conversion to ``tuple` `are : " ``+` `str``(res))`

Output :

```The original string is : 44.6463, -49.583
The coordinates after conversion to tuple are : (44.6463, -49.583)```

Method #2 :

Using eval() This is the one-liner and recommended method to perform this particular task. In this, the eval(), internally detects the string and converts to floating point number separated as tuple elements.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Convert location coordinates to tuple``# Using eval()` `# Initializing string``test_str ``=` `"``44.6463``, ``-``49.583``"` `# printing original string``print``("The original string ``is` `: " ``+` `str``(test_str))` `# Convert location coordinates to tuple``# Using eval()``res ``=` `eval``(test_str)` `# printing result``print``("The coordinates after conversion to ``tuple` `are : " ``+` `str``(res))`

Output :

```The original string is : 44.6463, -49.583
The coordinates after conversion to tuple are : (44.6463, -49.583)```
