Coordinate Systems Continued
Universal Transverse Mercator - UTM
- Coordinate origin for each zone, Eastings
- False origin established beyond westerly limit if zone such that the central
meridian of the zone has an easting of 500,000 meters.
- All eastings have a positive values for the zone
- Eastings range from 100,000 -900,000 meters
- The 6 Degree zone ranges from 166,667 to 833,333 m, leaving about a 1/2 Degree overlap at each end of the zone.
- This allows for overlaps and matching between zones.
