You are here: Coordinate Systems > LatLongToMGRSConverter


Calculates a Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) code based on the latitude and longitude values supplied in a feature's attributes.

The granularity of the resulting code is determined by the specified Precision which is an integer from 0 to 5 (inclusive). A precision of 5 locates a point within a 1-meter square and precision of 0 locates a point within 100-km square.

The result of the conversion is stored in the MGRS Code Attribute of the feature.
