Pau (int.) 2012 | Rectification GPS coordinates

There seems to be a bit confusion concerning the coordinates of Pau (431830.0 N / 01905.0 W) because normally there should be a plus or minus sign before the coordinates.

After having contacted the organisation, we received the confirmation that there should indeed be a minus sign before the W coordinates since Pau lies west of Greenwich. So the correct GPS coordinates for Pau 2012 are: 431830.0 (N) / -01905.0 (W).
