Spanish term or phrase: 200,600
This is from El Salvador.

I can't find any evidence to show that this is a formal way of expressing latitude and longitude.

Del anterior punto No. 1 se mide 2,500 metros con rumbo Este Franco para llegar al esquinero Noreste punto No. 2 de coordenadas Latitud 200,600 y Longitud 333,300.

Your suggestions are appreciated!

not sure to what extent of precision the Spanish takes it but if it goes this far, the substitution of a point for a comma in English would work
