Converts latitude/longitude coordinates to UTM ( 

Result is returned as a String[] of form  [<longitude zone>, <latitude zone>, <easting>, <northing>]  where easting is the projected distance from longitude zone's central meridian and northing is the projected distance from the equator. The values of both easting and northing are given in meters. For example, the latitude/longitude coordinates 61.44, 25.40 are presented in UTM as 35 V 414668 6812844; the latitude/longitude coordinates -47.04, -73.48 are 18 G 615471 4789269 in UTM.

Based on coordinate conversion software by Sami Salkosuo at IBM, see for more details.

Writing good docs:

Communicate Value

A good introduction should make it clear why someone might use your API.

Show and Tell

Give examples of using your API and explain those examples.

Easy to Skim

Ensure your docs are structured such that familiar users can quickly jump to the content they want.


Revisit your docs after making breaking changes or adding new features to keep them up-to-date.
