I understand, but I don't like arbitrarily chopping off significant figures at the beginning of a process when I don't know the reason for it.

I fixed the issue by the way by changing the format to "%.6f".

Somewhere around 5/6 decimal digits, the lat/lon of consumer grade GPS turns into fiction.  I keep seeing people reporting sub centimeter "precision" on hardware with a 10meter accuracy.

From your description, I can't work out if this is GPX, Unicsv, or csv (all of which are different code to us) and since you didn't provide a test case, can't put it in a debugger to analyze.

OK, I'm confused.  Using the following lines in my stylesheet:


I get a lat/lon output out to 5 decimal places.  When I convert the
same GPX file using UNICSV I get a lat/lon output out to 6 decimal
places (note the original GPX data file has 6 decimal places as well).

I thought, easy enough, change the output format to "%9.6f".  Except
that the additional decimal place is always a zero.

How do I get that additional significant digit back?
