## How do I convert WGS84 to UTM?

How to convert coordinates from WGS84 to UTM

- Select input\output spatial references.
- Input coordinates using decimal format.
- Click on ‘Transform’ button to convert coordinates.
- Your coordinates will be converted using the output spatial reference.

### How do I convert GPS coordinates to decimal?

Decimal degrees = Degrees + (Minutes/60) + (Seconds/3600)

- First, convert minutes and seconds to their degree equivalents and add the results. 25’/60 = 0.4167° 30″/3600 = .0083°
- Then, add this number to the number of degrees. 39° + 0.425° = 39.425°
- So, the final result is: 39° 25′ 30″ = 39.425°

#### How do I find my UTM coordinates?

Degrees, Decimal Minutes: such as 32° 18.385′ N 122° 36.875′ W. Universal Transverse Mercator: such as 10 S 055974, 4282182….

- Open Google Earth.
- At the top, click Tools. Options.
- Click 3D View. Then, under “Show Lat/Long,” choose a display format.
- Click OK. Coordinates will be displayed in the lower right corner.

**How do you write degrees in decimals?**

In most systems, such as Google Maps, the degree symbol is omitted and thus the coordinates are expressed as “38.889722, -77.008889”. A DMS value is converted to decimal degrees using the formula (D + M/60 + S/3600).

**What is the difference between UTM and latitude longitude?**

The Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) is a map projection system for assigning coordinates to locations on the surface of the Earth. However, it differs from global latitude/longitude in that it divides earth into 60 zones and projects each to the plane as a basis for its coordinates.

## How do you convert GPS coordinates to decimal degrees?

Example: Convert decimal degrees 156.742 to degrees minutes seconds

- The whole number is degrees.
- Multiply the remaining decimal by 60.
- Multiply the remaining decimal by 60.
- Decimal degrees 156.742 converts to 156 degrees, 44 minutes and 31 seconds, or 156° 44′ 31″.

### How do you write longitude and latitude in decimal degrees?

You simply write out the line of latitude, including decimals, followed by the line of longitude, including decimals. Use positive or negative numbers to indicate direction. For example, say a line falls 15°N, 30°W. Using the decimal degree system, you could write this as “15.23456, -30.67890.”

#### Is coordinates are a degree only?

The degrees are only precise to about 111 km so the coordinates are basically worthless. Use the information below to quickly compute how many digits you need to retain in DMS for the required precision: The Earth is about 40,000 km around. 40,000 / 360 degrees ~ 111 km/degree.

**What is the difference between UTM and MTM?**

In the UTM system, the world is divided up into 60 north south bands, each six degrees of longitude wide. Each zone has its own central meridian, at which distortion is minimized, located halfway across the band. However, in MTM, zones at 3 degrees of longitude wide.
