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.
The ellipsoid used for the conversion. This can be any ellipsoid name supported by FME.
The type of lettering used can be WGS84 or Bessel.
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 1-meter square and a precision of 0 locates a point within 100-km square.
You can choose these parameters from the attributes in the pull-down list, or enter the longitude (-90, 90) and latitude (-180, 180) values.
An MGRS code used to convert to lat/long coordinates. You can choose this parameter from the list of attributes in the pull-down list, or enter an MGRS string.
Editing Transformer Parameters
Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.
