This Online Coordinates Converter and Transformation Tool can be used to convert or transform UTM Coordinates to latitude-longitude coordinates (WGS84) and vice versa.
How to use this tool is easy. First, just select the original coordinate system (Input Coordinate System) and enter the coordinates. Then select the destination coordinate system (Coordinate System Output) and press the Transform Process button. The results will be displayed immediately.
Degrees Minutes Seconds (DMS) To Decimal Conversion
Latitude-longitude coordinates (WGS84) are written like this 5°34’14”,95°20’15” cannot be entered directly into the application above when they want to be converted. Because the above application can only process numbers in decimal format. The number of degrees minutes seconds (DMS) cannot be processed yet.
If you want to convert degrees minutes seconds to decimals, you can use this tool:
Example of Converting Latitude-longitude (WGS84) To UTM
To convert latitude-longitude coordinates (WGS84) to UTM using the above application, the input coordinate system is WGS 84. For the output coordinate system, make sure you choose the right zone, because if you choose the wrong zone, the result of the transformation will also be wrong. The following is an example of the transformation of latitude-longitude coordinates (WGS84) to UTM zone 50S.
To do the opposite, the conversion of UTM coordinates to latitude-longitude is reversed. The input coordinate system selects UTM according to the zone and the output coordinate system selects WGS 84.
About Online Coordinates Converter and Transformation Tool
The Online Coordinates Converter and Transformation Tool is a web-based tool which converts coordinates between different systems.
The tool is useful for:
- Data scientists
- GIS analysts
This coordinate transformation tool has been tested and also compared the results with the transformation results using the AutoCAD Map and ArcGIS programs. The result is the same.
What is Coordinate Transformation in GIS?
Coordinate transformation is the process of converting coordinates from one coordinate system to another.
The conversion is performed by a transformation matrix, which takes three vectors as input: two vectors of coordinates in the two systems and one vector giving the rotation angle between them.
A mapping projection is used to convert geographic coordinates from a spherical coordinate system to a flat map. The mapping projection is often chosen based on the region or country for which it will be used.
Why do we use coordinate system in GIS?
Coordinate systems are an important part of mapping. They are used to position points, lines, and polygons on a map. This is done by assigning coordinates to the features in a map.
There are different types of coordinate systems that can be used for GIS mapping. The most common ones are latitude and longitude, UTM, and the State Plane Coordinate System (SPCS).
Why do we need coordinate conversion?
Coordinate conversion is the conversion of geographic coordinates from one datum to another.
Coordinate conversion is necessary to make sure that maps, GPS devices, and other systems can accurately represent locations. This is necessary because different countries use different datums and these systems are not able to process coordinates in those formats.
What are some examples of applications that use coordinate transformation?
Coordinate transformation is a mathematical technique to map one point in space to another. This technique can be used for mapping of points on different coordinate systems.
An example of an application that uses coordinate transformation is GPS. GPS converts geographic coordinates into the more common latitude and longitude format.
