I’m rather used to writing latitude first and wasn’t actually paying close attention to the data entry fields, but I almost always see coordinates as XXX N/S XXX E/W. I was copying points of interest from the web and typing the latitude into the longitude field…

Just a heads up for anyone else who isn’t paying attention.

Thanks for the suggestion. I wrote Display latitude before longitude in the UI (contrary to our usual practice) · Issue #309 · CesiumGS/cesium-unreal · GitHub to discuss and possibly change this.
