COMMENTS

This is the conversion ratio between two solidangle measures: steradians and square degrees, applicable to integration infinitesimals. The square degree must not be confused with a finite spherical square having one degree side (see A231983, A231984, A231985), just as one steradian must not be confused with the solid angle covered by a spherical square with a side arclength of one radian (see A231986, A231987).
Equals also full solid angle expressed in degrees, divided by 4*Pi (i.e., A125560/(4*Pi)).
