Round Earth Flat Earth...

Recommended Posts

how in the heck do I project from a UTM coord "assuming the earth is round"


I thought every one knew the earth was round!!! :(

I thought UTM assumed a "flat earth" within each map zone. That is why UTM is not used for long distance navigation, where the curvature of the earth makes a difference.
