    Default Help needed to UTM

    A German newbee has asked about a coordinate in our German language thread zone:

    Hallo,
    ich brauche bitte Hilfe und zwar wenn ich die Koordinaten:

    Geographisches Begrenzungsrechteck:
    nördliche Breite: 5329487.0 östliche Länge: 4437940.0
    südliche Breite: 5318221.0 westliche Länge: 4425384.0

    eingebe dann lande ich woanders aber nich in die Nähe von Fürstenfeldbruck, was der Fall sein sollte.

    Danke schon im Voraus.

    Hello,
    I ask because I need help and that the coordinates:

    Geographic bounding box:
    North: 5329487.0 East: 4437940.0
    South latitude: West 5318221.0: 4425384.0

    When I enter I end up somewhere else but not in the vicinity of Furstenfeldbruck, what should be the case.

    What do I do?

    Thanks already in advance.

    I don't think you have enough information to convert that to standard Lat/Lon coordinates. If it is UTM, I think you would need to know which UTM zone it is. Also need to know datum. Also there could be false easting/northing.

    I found out what it was. These are coordinates used in plat maps.

    Thanks for your help anyway.
