First convert your 'd.m.s' measure to decimal degrees (dd), and then convert that to radians.

#### Explanation:

One degree is equal 0.01745329252 radians. 1° = π/180°

One radian is equal 57.295779513 degrees. 1 rad = 180°/π

One degree is equal to 60 minutes and equal to 3600 seconds:

1° = 60' = 3600"

The decimal degrees dd is equal to:

dd = d + m/60 + s/3600

So, first convert your 'd.m.s' measure to decimal degrees (dd), and then convert that to radians.
