Longitude
Longitude of the calculated centroid of the CD is stored as six digits. The last four digits represent the decimal fraction of the degree of longitude (which gives an accuracy of 0.0115 kilometres). As all longitudes in Australia are over 100 degrees East, the leading 100 digit has been dropped in this representation e.g. 215176 = 121.5176 degrees East.
