    The matlab toolbox ConvertCoordinates can be used for coordinate transformations between a lot of coordinate systems. There is also a stand-alone version of this program with a Graphical User Interface (GUI) which is called SuperTrans. The basis of this system is the EPSG Geodetic Parameter Dataset, which contains a lot of coordinate system definitions. The EPSG database is freely available at

    The toolbox can be downloaded below.

    Note: this toolbox requires Matlab.

    To use this toolbox, download and extract the zip-file to a local directory, for example "d:\matlabtools\". Start Matlab and after initializing, enter at the command line:

    >> addpath('d:\matlabtools\convertCoordinates');

    Next, run 'ccsettings' to add all functions of this toolbox:

    >> ccsettings;

    In Matlab, support on using ConvertCoordinates is provided by:

    >> help convertcoordinates

    The same documentation can be found online.


    Tutorials are available within the toolbox (see the sub-directory 'tutorial'). They can also be found here.
