What is Co-ordinate Converter?

Co-ordinate Converter grew out of a practical need to convert between the projection co-ordinates used to construct Ordnance Survey small-scale maps of Great Britain from the early 20th century and the modern-day GB National Grid.

It began life in the Summer of 2004 as a very simple piece of software - written in Visual Basic - allowing three-way conversion between OS Latitude/Longitude, GB National Grid and Cassini (Delamere) co-ordinates. From there the software grew to include support for conversions to/from other projected co-ordinate systems commonly in use in Great Britain and Ireland.

In November 2007 the County Series sheet references for Great Britain and the Isle of Man were incorporated into the software, introducing a new level of versatility to Co-ordinate Converter.

Between December 2008 and April 2009 the software version was ported to the current web-based version, including support for additional co-ordinate systems, and for the first time conversion to/from GPS-compatible latitude/longitude for Great Britain and Ireland. Details can be found in the Co-ordinate Converter Version History.

Please note that the downloadable standalone version of Co-ordinate Converter is currently not available pending a completely revised version (no release date has yet been set).
