# How do you convert latitude and longitude to XY coordinates?

## How do you convert latitude and longitude to XY coordinates?

The above two formulas are derived from the following formulas: x = R * cos (latitude) * cos (longitude); y = R * cos (latitude) * sin (longitude); z = R * sin (latitude).

## How do you convert WGS to UTM?

- 1 .Navigate to the following location using catalog window / ArcCatalog.
- C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.2\Reference Systems.
- In a new arcmap session add “utm.shp” from the above location.
- Add your location layer ( which is in WGS)
- Use Identify tool and click on the city.
- You will find zone in the identify window.

**How do you find XY coordinates?**

To find out the coordinates of a point in the coordinate system you do the opposite. Begin at the point and follow a vertical line either up or down to the x-axis. There is your x-coordinate. And then do the same but following a horizontal line to find the y-coordinate.

**How do you convert latitude and longitude to XY coordinates in Qgis?**

Either in Windows or Mac.

- In QGIS, go to the top menu bar.
- Click on Layer > Add Layer > Add Delimited Text Layer.
- Click on “Browser” and select the CSV or TXT file with the coordinates to convert.
- Select the number of row that you want to select (if there’s a labels row)
- Set the X field and Y fields.
- Click on OK.

### How do I add XY data to Arcmap?

Steps for adding x,y data as a layer

- Click File > Add Data > Add XY Data.
- Select the table that contains x,y coordinate data.
- Identify the columns that hold the x- and y-coordinates (and, optionally, the z-coordinate).
- Specify the coordinate system.

### What are XY coordinates on a map?

Coordinates are pairs (X, Y) in a two-dimensional space referenced to a horizontal datum. Whereas triplets (X, Y, Z) of points not only has a position but also has height referenced to a vertical datum. In other words, the X- and Y-values represent a horizontal position.

**Is WGS 84 the same as UTM?**

WGS84 allows you to have a datum in the full meaning of the term, and this is projected using the map projection. UTM is a map projection system: Universal Transverse Mercator. WGS is a datum and ellipsoid that model the Earth. In GIS, specifying WGS84 as the datum means you can use GPS data directly.

**How do you convert Plus code to coordinates?**

Find & share a location’s Plus Code On your computer, open Google Maps. Click the location where you need a Plus Code. At the bottom, in the info box, click the coordinates. For example: 53.339688, -6.236688 .
