I need to find a simple program for Windows which transforms lat-long to UTM. I know that there a websites to do this, but this is for use with the emergency services. The forestry commision use gps hardware which gives coordinates in Lat-Long. The software back in the Emergency central have to use UTM. The software doesn´t transform coordinates. They have asked me to find a solution to do a quick conversion. I wouldn´t like to put lives at risk by using a website which could go offline just when we need it, so I would prefer an installed program. Any good ones out there?
There are a lot of potential solutions.
You could use QGIS or install Proj4 and GDAL and write a little script.
If you have PostGIS or some other free geospatial database, that would do too (SpatiaLite is lightwieght and could do the job).
You can use for example the "gdaltransform" utility http://www.gdal.org/gdaltransform.html
Usage for EPSG:32632 (is this right?)
WGS 84 / UTM zone 32N
