Related to an earlier Q&A of Missing grid shift files for cs2cs.exe?, what are the various methods to convert coordinate datum and format in python?
(Windows Vista, python 3.4)
For example, given the coordinates WGS84 Decimal Degrees 39deg 12.3456min north by 120deg 12.3456min west, (epsg 4326)
translate the coordinates to NAD27 CONUS UTM zone 10 latitude band S (epsg 26710, unless there's a better one?)
Speed is not important for this application.
The methods I'm aware of:
- pyProj - a pain to install for Windows, if possible at all? Attempting and researching this was enough of a pain that I bailed out and tried the next two options as an external system call from python, which seems fine since I'm not using very much of the proj capabilities:
- cs2cs from OSGeo - does not come with the necessary grid shift files?
- cs2cs from gisinternals.com - working correctly with advice from @user30184 at Missing grid shift files for cs2cs.exe?
Are there any other methods?
