Default UTM to Decimal Degrees to Lat/Long

A calculator to convert between UTM, Decimal Degrees, and Lat/Long would be very helpful. Thanks!

Absolutely it would, and its on my to-do list.

I have been researching this, and have a few links collected. Try this site here:

It has been researched, and is on my list, just nothing up on the site.

I know I am a bit behind right now, I am just the only person working on the site.

All the college students I have helping must be on break or nearing finals. They only really help out when they need the spending money.

Luckily though I am in negotiation with a programmer in Belgium who expressed interest in working here and at a price I can afford, so keep your fingers crossed that I may have help soon.

I am Mr. Koech from Egerton University. I am finding it hard to do the conversion from UTM to decimal degrees to latitude and longitude. Your indulgence in this will be of great help to me.
Thank you

The math is really quite cumbersome. If you wish to write your own computer program, you need Redfearn's equations. These are pretty well described in an Australian Geodetic Survey manual available on the web. It involves a series expansion of the ellipsoid model of the earth and requires iterative solutions. (After reading it, I concluded I WASN'T writing my own routine.)

Unless you have a lot of data, it is better to use a canned routine. Whatever NGS stands for it is the new name of the US Geodetic Survey. Routines for both UTM and USNG are near the bottom of this tool page:

NGS = National Geodetic Survey

Maybe they assumed that "US" was just too confusing but the math isn't? :-)
