Abstract:

The work described in this report was done to circumvent the problem presented by attempting to relate medical observations reported in terms of the Universal Transverse Mercator grid system with geophysical map data which ordinarily are expressed in terms of LatitudeLongitude. This report discusses in detail the Universal Transverse Mercator system for map coordinates and then presents computer programs that effect a conversion of the Universal Transverse Mercator coordinates to LatitudeLongitude coordinates.
