Greetings. Some months ago I mentioned a slightly buggy American online facility for converting between grid references and geographical coordinates (lat/lon), something many of us need to do when recording locational data in UTM format and wanting to convert it to lat/lon for the Birds Australia and other observation data sheets.

A fine service from Geoscience Australia.
