    Default get GMT Offset when latitude and longitude are inputs

    Hi,
    I want to get the GMT Offset with inputs: latitude and longitude.
    I used formula: gmt=longitude/15 -> which gives approximate value. instead of 4 it is 4.8
    rounding this we get 5.

    Help me with new logic.

    Thanks.

    Default Re: get GMT Offset when latitude and longitude are inputs

    I'm having difficulty understanding what it is you want. Could you post a code example? It sounds like you're having a rounding issue. Use Math.floor() to round the results down instead of the usual to the nearest integer. Note that you may want to add a small offset to ensure that values which turn out very close to an integer (ex. 3.99999999999998) get floored to 4.
