Geodetic Toolkit Conversion

Convert between Geodetic Positions and State Plane Coordinates using the National Geodetic Survey Geodetic Toolkit.

The State Plane Coordinate system provides coordinates on a flat grid for easy computation while maintaining a difference between geodetic and grid distance of
one part in 10,000 or better.

The State Plane Coordinate system divides the U.S. into a hundred or more distinct grid surfaces (Zones).

Do not mix coordinates from one Zone with that in another. In you need to cross Zone boundaries, use Geodetic Positions.
