Lat/Long to UTM Conversion on 12/02/2011 20:41:53 MST Print View

I'm having problems finding a website to convert Lat/Long to UTM coordinates (NAD27). Specifically, I'm using a location from my SPOT on a previous hike in Big Bend National Park for another upcoming hike to Big Bend w/ some Scouts. Google Maps list the location as:
Lat 29.24401
Long -103.27713

When I've tried numerous online conversion calculators, I keep getting error messages.

Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM):
Zone: 13
Easting: 667425
Northing: 3236250

This is WGS84, not NAD27, but unless you are digging for treasure it should be fine

Have you tried http://www.rcn.montana.edu/resources/tools/coordinates.aspx? You can choose map datum Clarke 1866 (NAD 27).

Rutherford: Thanks.

Laurie: I didn't try that one. Tried several others that I couldn't seem to work. Obviously, operator error at my end. That website worked perfectly for me. Thanks a lot. I'll bookmark that one for future reference.
