Converts decimal degrees (DD) to degrees minutes (DM). The format of degrees minutes can be used with Google Earth and Google Maps. Calling the function requires two paramaters: (1) the latitude or longitude in decimal degrees and (2) the type of decimal degrees either "latitude" or "longitude". The type can be shortened to "lat" or "lon" and may be in any case: upper, lower, or mixed.
