Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to convert these - if it is even needed?

If, and ONLY IF, you are in North America, there should be no need to convert. NAD83 is the latest North American Datum, and I believe that WGS84 is like a global projection of the same datum. Just as a test before I posted this reply, I looked at the coordinates for my house on my GPS-r under both data, and they are the same--as a control, I also looked at the coordinates under NAD 27-CONUS and they were different under that datum. So NAD83 and WGS84 are the same in North America.
