LatLongUTMconversion, Python code to convert between Lat/Lon and UTM

This Python library code converts between Lat/Long and UTM. I use it in Pygps, Mapview, and a few other programs. This same algorithm is available in libproj. There are python bindings for libproj in¬†Thuban. Thuban is good, but I don’t want my code to depend on Thuban. Also turns out that there are independent¬†Python bindings for proj.


You can download the current version.


Unpack it, and run “python install” as root. That will install it in your site-packages directory and byte-compile it.
