# Python | Convert location coordinates to tuple

Python Methods and Functions

Method # 1: Using ` tuple () + float () + split () + map () `

A combination of the above functions can be used to complete this task. In this, we first split the two pieces of coordinates into a list, apply the float function to each one using ` float () ` and ` map () ` and finally it is converted to a tuple with using ` tuple () `.

 ` # Python3 code to demonstrate how it works ` ` # Convert location coordinates to tuple ` ` # Using tuple () + float () + split () + map () `   ` # Initializing string ` ` test_str ` ` = ` ` "44.6463, -49.583" ` ` `  ` # print the original line ` ` print ` ` (` ` "The original string is:" ` ` + ` ` str ` ` (test_str)) `   ` # Convert location coordinates to tuple ` ` # Using tuple () + float () + split () + map () ` ` res ` ` = ` ` tuple ` ` (` ` map ` ` (` ` float ` `, test_str.split (` ` ',' ` `))) `   ` # print result ` ` print ` ` (` ` "The coordinates after conversion to tuple are:" ` ` + ` str ` (res)) `

Output:

` The original string is: 44.6463, -49.583 The coordinates after conversion to tuple are: (44.6463, -49.583) `

Method # 2: Using `eval()`
This is a one-line and recommended method to accomplish this particular task. In this case, ` eval () ` internally detects the string and converts it to a floating point number, delimited as tuple elements.

` `

` # Python3 demo code # Convert location coordinates to tuple # Using eval ()   # Initializing string test_str = "44.6463, -49.583"   # print original line print ( "The original string is:" + str < code class = "plain"> (test_str))   # Convert coordinates locations in a tuple # Using eval () res = eval (test_str)   # print result print ( "The coordinates after conversion to tuple are:" + str (res)) `

` ` Output:

` The original string is: 44.6463, -49.583 The coordinates after conversion to tuple are: (44.6463, -49.583) `
