The Universal Transverse Mercator is a system for assigning coordinates to locations on the surface of the Earth. Like the traditional method of latitude and longitude, it is a horizontal position representation, which means it ignores altitude and treats the earth as a perfect ellipsoid. 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 . UTM is the acronym for Universal Transverse Mercator, a plane coordinate grid system named for the map projection on which it is based (Transverse Mercator). The UTM system consists of 60 zones, each 6-degrees of longitude in width. The zones are numbered , beginning at degrees longitude and increasing to the east. The military uses.

UTM - Universal Transverse Mercator UTM Projection. As the name suggests, the Universal Transverse Mercator projection is based on the cylindrical Transverse Mercator projection. The cylinder in the Transverse Mercator projection is tangent along a meridian (line of longitude) or it is secant, in which case it cuts through the earth at two standard meridians. The UTM Grid - Universal Transverse Mercator Projection. To understand how the projection works, imagine the Earth as an orange, with all geographical features and the parallels and meridians already drawn in. Now imagine taking a knife and, after slicing off small circles at the poles, making a straight north-south cut in the peel of the.

Transverse Mercator projection to geographic The conversion of Transverse Mercator projection coordinates (N, E) to geographic coordinates (achieved in several steps. First determine using:) is 4 * 64 G * 27 n sin 20 + sm 40 sin 60+ sin 80 File Size: 1MB. Since a sideways projection is called a “transverse” projection, and since the Army used a sideways Mercator projection, the resulting grid is called the Universal Transverse Mercator grid. Based on the metric system, it covers the globe from 80° south latitude to 84° north latitude with little distortion.

In addition, there is a UTM Grid tool forscale maps in the last page of the book. Universal transverse mercator grid book Will recommend it to anyone who is into orienteering and land navigation, and also those in the search and rescue field as a refreshing reading (the book is only 50 pages long and easy to carry in a backpack or car glove compartment)/5(70).

These will extend from the poles to 83°30'N. or 79°30'S, thus providing a 30' overlap on the Universal Transverse Mercator. Appears in 2 books from Page 17 - XVI are taken out for the latitude ф', ie, the foot of the perpendicular from the point to the central meridian.

A 45 page instruction book packed full of information on the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) Map Coordinate System and a “pocket sized” UTM Grid Overlay suitable for use withscale, minute USGS topographic maps.

The Universal Transverse Mercator system is not really universal, but it does cover nearly the entire Earth surface. Only polar areas--latitudes higher than 84° North and 80° South--are excluded. (Polar coordinate systems are used to specify positions beyond these latitudes.).

The Universal Transverse Mercator grid The National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) (formerly the Defense Mapping Agency) adopted a special grid for military use throughout the world called the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) grid.

In this grid, the world is divided into 60 north-south zones, each covering a strip 6° wide in Size: KB. The Universal Transverse Mercator Grid The National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) (formerly the Defense Mapping Agency) adopted a special grid for military use throughout the world called the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) grid.

In this grid, the world is divided into 60 north-south zones, each covering a strip 6° wide in longitude. OVERVIEWUTM coordinates are based on a family of Transverse Mercator map projections (two for each UTM zone, with one for each N/S hemisphere).The earth is divided into 60 zones, each 6° wide in longitude (with the exception of a few non-standard-width zones for Svalbard and southwest of.

How to Read UTM Coordinates. 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. A in-depth explanation and illustration of the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) grid.

This map grid is often used by backpackers and cross-country trekkers. It is the grid of choice for land. The universal transverse Mercator (UTM) grid [electronic resource].

This guide describes one method of setting up a Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) grid system on a base map for transfer to a field map.

On some maps, the meridians and parallels appear as straight lines. On most modern maps, however, the meridians and parallels appear as curved lines. These differences sre due to the mathematical treatment required to portray. The Universal Transverse Mercator grid covers the globe from 84 degrees north latitude to 80 south latitude.

It does not cover the poles. For polar navigation, you'll need to know the Universal Polar Stereographic (UPS) grid. Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) CRS in detail The Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate reference system has its origin on the equator at a specific Longitude.

Now the Y-values increase southwards and the X-values increase to the West. The UTM CRS is a global map projection. This means, it is generally used all over the world. The Universal Transverse Mercator Coordinate (UTM) system provides coordinates on a world wide flat grid for easy computation.

The Universal Transverse Mercator Coordinate system divides the World into 60 zones, each being 6 degrees longitude wide, and extending from 80 degrees south latitude to 84 degrees north latitude The polar regions are excluded.

A navigation grid is a reference system developed by cartographers that can be used to plot a geographic position on a map. There are many grid systems available for use such as Latitude and Longitude and Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM).

Many countries have their own national grid system. The UTM system is just like a Cartesian Grid.Get this from a library! Universal transverse Mercator grid: table of geographic coordinates meter U.T.M.
