    Transforming UTM to Lat/lon
    From: Herbert Prinz
    Date: 2003 Dec 10, 20:16 -0500

    Hello George,
    Have a look at
    The first link points to a web site that performs the conversion on line. It
    contains a reference to the second site, which provides the formulae for all kinds
    of map transformations, if you want to program them yourself. You can use the first
    site to test and debug your program by cross checking the outputs.
    By the way, I missed your inquiry when you originally made it, because it was buried
    in a thread about Lewis and Clark and River Navigation. It came up only by accident
    when I searched recent messages in my in-box for the term "Microsoft"! May I humbly
    suggest that we follow a recent suggestion of list member Ken Gebhart to give our
    messages more telling subject titles?
    Best regards
    Herbert Prinz
