Summary
Abstract: The software converts between USNG, UTM, and geodetic latitude/longitude. The U.S. National Grid (USNG) System is an alpha-numeric reference system that overlays the UTM coordinate system. It is a Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) standard developed to improve public safety, commerce, as well as aid the casual GPS user. The USNG provides an easy to use geoaddress system for identifying and determining locations with the help of a USNG gridded map and/or a USNG enabled GPS system.
