I've come across a set of GPS co-ordinates on the INBIO website in a format with which I'm not familiar and I'm hoping someone might recognize it.  The co-ordinates are L_N_184600_643400 and they can be found in a Specimen Data spreadsheet here ( http://www.inbio.ac.cr/papers/Elateriformes/Platycrepidius.html )
Does anyone know how I can convert them to another format, e.g. decimal degrees or degrees.decimal minutes or degrees, minutes, seconds?
Thanks in advance,
