IConversionMGRS Interface

Provides access to members that allow the use of MGRS.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.


IConversionMGRS contains methods for converting both projected and geographic (lat/lon) coordinates to and from a string in the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS).  The MGRS is based on Universal Transverse Mercator(UTM) coordinates. A simplified version of MGRS is used in the United States National Grid (USNG).  A single string can be used to represent any point on the Earth's surface with MGRS/USNG. 


Name Description
Method CreateMGRS Returns the MGRS/USNG description of a point.
Method PutCoordsFromMGRS Creates the coordinates of a point from the MGRS/USNG description.
