  1. UTM Coordinate SystemUTM Grid. By means of a map projection, the earth's curved surface is transformed to a flat two-dimensional surface. A coordinate system or grid is superimposed on the resulting flat surface. Such a coordinate system provides a referencing frame in order to define the position of objects.

  2. the UTM grid lines. Determining a UTM Grid Value for a Map Point The UTM grid is shown on all quadrangle maps prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). On 7.5-minute quadran-and 15-minute quadrangle maps indicated at intervals of 1,000 meters, either by blue ticks in the margins of the map or with full grid lines. The 1,000-

  3. Apr 26, 2022 · For coordinate conversion, NCAT allows conversion between lat/long/height, SPC, UTM, XYZ, and USNG systems. NCAT currently uses NADCON* to perform three-dimensional (latitude, longitude, ellipsoid height) coordinate transformations and VERTCON* to perform orthometric height transformations.

  4. Feb 13, 2022 · The UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) system is a system of coordinates that describes position on a map. GPS receivers can display locations in UTM coordinates. Most maps, especially those for hikers, display UTM coordinates. They are widely used by Search and Rescue operators and are even becoming more common in guidebooks.

  5. Jun 30, 2021 · The UTM project conducts research to make it possible for small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS), commonly known as “drones,” to safely access low-altitude airspace beyond visual line of sight. The project’s focus is a series of field demonstrations that include partners from the Federal Aviation Administration, industry and academia, and ...

  6. The UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) coordinate system divides the world into sixty north-south zones, each 6 degrees of longitude wide. UTM zones are numbered consecutively beginning with Zone 1, which includes the westernmost point of Alaska, and progress eastward to Zone 19, which includes Maine.

  7. Data in the UTM coordinate system referenced to the NAD 1983 datum is approximately 200 meters north of the same data referenced instead to the NAD 1927 datum. There may be a slight shift either east or west between data on these two datums, but an approximate 200-meter difference in the northing is diagnostic.
