actually a geotag could be useful and handy. i was once at a restaurant, random find, and the food was great. but neither of us remembered the name or location or how we got there. so, a geotag of where i was with my phone helped to narrow things down. at that point, i didn't even know that my phone could do that or was doing it.

Is Geotag a software? a mobile app? or a hardware chip technology like GPS built inside the phone??

so now
for example, I have the GPS location like this format

12; 26; 3.9620000000022412
123; 52; 66.018500000005518
Height 33

How to use these values to find out my location ? any website would help??

google maps
Copy/paste these values, just like this:
12.26962, 123.52660185

the manual way that people should learn:

12; 26; 3.962 = 12deg, 26min, 3.962sec = 12 + 26/60 + 3.962/3600 = 12.43443

similar approach for the other one

then like he said, dump those coordinates into Google Maps

12.43443; 12.???
