Map Tools is a utility that let users to fully utilize coordinates. Map Tools converts coordinates among various datums, coordinate systems and map projections. It also calculates distance and bearing between two coordinates.
Map Tools supports coordinates conversion between geodetic coordinates, UTM, UPS, MGRS and map projections in up to 232 datums.
The app is delivered with WGS84 ellipsoid and used as the default datum. You can purchase an add on that will provide you with an additional 232 datums, which include NAD27, NAD83, ED50, OSGB36, EGSA87, AGD66, AGD84, GDA94, NZGD2000, NZGD1949 and a lot more.
The following coordinate systems are available to choose as the input or output coordinates system:
* Geodetic (latitude and longitude)
* Map Grid Australia (MGA) for GDA94 Datum
* British National Grid for OSGB36 Datum
* New Zealand Transverse Mercator 2000 (NZTM2000)
* New Zealand Map Grid (NZMG) for NZGD49 Datum
* Swiss Grid for CH1903 Datum
* Greek Grid for EGSA87 Datum
* Singapore TM for SVY21 Datum
make all datums available to MGRS coordinate system
Ratings and Reviews
Could be better could be worse
It's all Awsom except for one thing... When you go to see how far one set of coordinates is from another it has to be at least like .37 somthin' feet.
Okay for what it does, but...
It might deserve 3 stars if (1) coordinates could be entered by use of the map, similar to marking a location with a drop pin in the Maps app, and (2) the app included 1 additional datum for the base price. USGS topo maps are referenced to the NAD27 CONUS datum, and that datum is the only one I use. I spent the additional $2.99 for the datum converter add-on before discovering the Topo Maps app, which is far more suitable for my use.
Works great for zone 10S at least. Be aware of which UTM grid this app uses and make sure it's applicable to your needs. Having said that, it's a great program! Very handy if you are working with GIS data.
