UTM conversion software


Recommended Posts

As a newbie (37 found ), I wonder how to best convert UTM to Lat/Long or Lat/Long to UTM? There are websites I have found that will do it, but wonder about software to use when I have no internet connection. Any suggestions?

If you're entering UTM coordinates from a USGS map, keep in mind most of these maps are in NAD27 Datum. You should set the GPS to that Datum before you enter the coordinates otherwwise it will be incorrect. After entering it, set your GPS to dd mm.mmm and WGS84 Datum and you'll have the coordiante is a position and Datum that we use on these caching pages.


Of course the opposite approach works when transferring the other way.
