UTM - Lat Long Southern Hemisphere


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I haven't used WASP for so long.

When I transfer the projection from LAT-LONG WSG84 to UTM 34 I get wrong values for the Coordinates.

e.g. N -33.400002° becomes N -3699083.5m the correct value would be 6220000m S

I guess the mistake is that I can't change the hemisphere in Wasp and Wasp try to refer my values to the northern hemisphere.

Would be nice if somebody could give me a hint.

Best Regards,

There was some confusion in early versions of WAsP 10 about southern hemisphere coordinates. This issue has been resolved now; so if you install the latest version of WAsP 10 (which you might get at http://www.risoe.dtu.dk/WAsP/Download/Software/WAsP10_Installation.aspx) you should have no problems at all. I would recommend uninstalling any and all old versions of WAsP 10 first, before installing the latest one.

Thank you for replying so quickly.
You are right we are still using version 9.xx
I will speak with my administrator if I can install the newer version.

I hope this solves the problem.

I've already invested to much time on this issue because Google Earth has a bug as well if you install the english version on a OS with germane language settings.
