    Default SG Coordinates conversion

    Good evening guys.
    Who can help me to convert 4 X SG coordinates to a coordinate that I can input to Google maps?

    Are the co-ordinates in degrees, minutes and seconds ?

    Those are from the LO system. There are some constsants missing. From where in SA are those co-ordinates ?

    If you use Mapsource or Basecamp you can set the preference to South African grid. After capturing the points, change the preference to what you need.

    Interesting subject. I didn't know about the WG system and the LO system.

    The system type should be mentioned above the coordinates table on the SG diagram.
