Hi Marco,

Do you have any plans to make the display of longitude/lattitude grids with degrees-minutes-seconds labels possible? It would be a useful option as most people read those better than decimal degrees as that is the traditional format. Also, it would be nice to even be able to toggle between UTM and DMS when the coordinate system is a projected coordinate system, such as UTM. I'm not sure how feasible that latter request is though.

One other thought on grids. It would be nice to be able to have another option beyond lines and cross marks for grids. This other option would be to have tick marks on the map boundary. Perhaps they could even be user-selectable as to whether they occur on the inside or outside of the boundary, kind of like the labeling options.
