utm-ups

This is a Common Lisp library to convert coordinates between Latitude/Longitude and UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) or UPS (Universal Polar Stereographic).

1API

In the library, latitude and longitude are represented by real numbers (degrees), positive for northern latitude and eastern longitudes, and negative for southern latitude and western longitudes.

UTM zones are represented by positive integers for northern latitudes and negative integers for southern latitudes.

UPS zones are either t for northen latitudes or nil for southern latitudes.

1.1Ellipsoids

*ellipsoid*

Special variable containing the name of the ellipsoid that will be used in computations ("WGS 84" by default).

(ellipsoids) -> list

Return the list of supported ellipsoids.

1.2Main functions

(lat/lon->utm-ups latitude longitude &optional zone) -> list, string

Return the UTM or UPS zone, easting and northing for the given latitude and longitude. The second returned value is the UTM or UPS band. The zone parameter can be used to force in which UTM zone the coordinates will be computed.

(utm/ups->lat/lon zone easting northing) -> list

Return the latitude and longitude for the given UTM or UPS zone, easting and northing.

(band latitude longitude) -> string

Return the UTM or UPS band for the given latitude and longitude.

(format-utm/ups zone easting northing &optional band) -> string

Return UTM or UPS coordinates as a string. If band is not specified, it will be set to + for northern zones and to - for southern zones.

(parse-utm/ups string) -> list

Return the UTM or UPS coordinates represented as a string.

(format-lat/lon latitude longtude &optional decimal) -> string

Return the coordinates as a string. If decimal is not nil, decimal notation will be used for angles, otherwise d°m's" notation will be used.

(parse-lat/lon string) -> list

Return the latitude and longitude represented as a string.

1.3UTM specific functions

(lat/lon->utm latitude longitude &optional zone) -> list, string

Return the UTM zone, easting and northing for the given latitude and longitude. The second returned value is the UTM band. The zone parameter can be used to force in which UTM zone the coordinates will be computed.

(utm->lat/lon zone easting northing) -> list

Return the latitude and longitude for the given UTM zone, easting and northing.

(utm-zone latitude longitude) -> integer

Return the UTM zone number for the given latitude and longitude.

(utm-band latitude) -> string

Return the UTM band for the given latitude.

1.4UPS specific functions

(lat/lon->ups latitude longitude) -> list, string

Return the UPS hemisphere, easting and northing for the given latitude and longitude. The second returned value is the UPS band.

(ups->lat/lon northp easting northing) -> list

Return the latitude and longitude for the given UPS hemisphere (northp), easting and northing.

(ups-band latitude longitude) -> string

Return the UPS band for the given latitude and longitude.

"T"

> (utm-ups:format-utm/ups 30 440627.3875554724d0 4476089.9799552625d0 "T")
"30T 0440627 4476090"

Get back the latitude and longitude of Madrid:

> (utm-ups:utm/ups->lat/lon 30 440627.3875554724d0 4476089.9799552625d0)
(40.433333001062145d0 -3.700000000011189d0)

> (utm-ups:format-lat/lon 40.433333001062145d0 -3.700000000011189d0)
"40°25'59.9\"N 3°42'00.0\"W"

Get the coordinates of the McMurdo station either in UTM or in UPS:
