I am seeking a GIS datasets that has the longitude and latitude that I really need badly that has the degrees, minutes and seconds .... I am aware that there is 1 degree, 5 degree, 30 degree and 45 degrees.... I do not want them...

Where do I find them ? I have looked around on the internet and didn't find it....

I'm not aware of any such existing datasets, but you can make your own layer in either QGIS or Arc. Search for "create fishnets" in GIS Stack Exchange. BTW, a worldwide layer at your granularity will be immense, approaching 4 billion(!) polygons, which probably explains why you didn't find one. You may want to create such a layer at a regional scale instead.
