View Full Version : trying to identify the coordinates
07-08-2007, 04:20 AM
I have a map of a land subdivision (circa 1968) and it has several types of coordinates on it that I'm not familiar with, how do I convert these coordinates to GPS coordinates (long, lat):
Thanks in advance.

Figure out what coordinate system they are in and then use one of the many online converters.

That's what I've been trying to do, I search all over but I can't seem to find it. Does it look familiar?

There is no way to tell just from the numbers, it should be printed on the map somewhere.

Here is the map that I'm looking at: http://www.arkmaps.com/details.asp?ID=00000268
I'm trying to find the location in the top right corner (the dot inside the circle), so I can place it on top of an aerial photo.

Probably a state grid.

how can it be converted to GPS coordinates?
You need zone number, which can be found here http://www.ngs.noaa.gov/cgi-bin/spc_zones.prl (by county name)
