Map Making Support / State Plane coordinates?
« on: October 19, 2009, 06:43:28 PM »
Hello all,

I'm new here and in need of a bit of help.  I have a set of coordinates for testing locations that I have to navigate to on a >700 acre engineering project.  They're in MA State Plane coordinates.  I have a Garmin Vista HCX.

Unfortunately, I didn't realize that the Garmin unit has no idea what MA state plane coordinates are. According to MassGIS, the State Plane uses the NAD83 datum: http://www.mass.gov/mgis/dd-over.htm.

I'd like to convert the State Plane coordinates to UTMs (or some system I can use with the Garmin) or find some other solution to the problem, but I'm pretty well lost at the moment.

Any help would be most sincerely appreciated.
