Hi Gerald,
again thanks for the help. I made a mistake in the coordinates that I
wrote, adding a 1 in front since I thought it was a typo. Sorry for
that. So I try to be more precise on this. (Now installing proj on
my machine...).
So the coordinates that I would like to have are: (long is west of
Rome-M.Mario of 12d 27' 8.4")
1d07'30" 43d00'00" >>> 689760.45 4763707.54
1d07'30" 42d55'00" >>> 690021.52 4754462.74
1d00'00" 42d55'00" >>> 700210.22 4754751.94
1d00'00" 43d00'00" >>> 699948.89 4763999.07
So trying the last two points in Greenwich long run through
proj +proj=utm +zone=32 +ellps=intl:
11d27'8.4" 42d55'00"
yields 700169.30 4754564.18
but should be about 700210.22 4754751.94
11d27'8.4" 43d00'00"
yields 699899.19 4763819.04
but should be aobut 699948.89 4763999.07
You see that the numbers are in the UTM range. The map quite clearly
states that the grid is UTM 32 on the intnl. ellipsoid, so there
shouldn't be any doubt there. And also the lat/long refers to the
same ellipsoid. The projection talks about the European Datum of
1950--no information what datum is used for the lat/long....
Could there be a datum shift to consider??? Any clue where I'm going
wrong?
Again, many thanks for your help.
