Guest puma

Is there a web site that will translates NAD 27 into WGS 84?

This is what is used on the geocache web site. I use it and it works just fine. I dont know of any programs for the pc so its a bit of a pain if you dont have access to the internet. I have been looking for something for the palm, so if anyone has one, could you please pass it on. http://www.jeeep.com/details/coord/

They also have the interactive web versions of the software - called the Geodetic Tool Kit. This site is hosted by the NGS and is a worthwhile visit for all sorts of GPS related

information.

There are whole careers doing this sort of thing, so you may be overwhelmed if you check it out.

 

I'm learning, but slowly!

Jeremy is right! This stuff gets highly technical (not that I understand it). Be sure to check out the section on how to do

laplace transformations to correct for datum

One reason I got a GPS is I'm a techie and

interested in navigation in general and

cartography in particular. But the great thing about the "technical" stuff is that you don't need it for geocaching - most of the technical stuff revolves around taking the GPS "normal" (sans SA) accuracy of about

15 meters down to five or so mm. That's right - 5 mm. That's with them high dollar

government toys ....

Gentleman, Let your GPS unit do it for you.

Set your GPS to WGS 84, enter the numbers.

Reset your GPS to NAD27 or what ever datum your map is. Thats all there is to it.
