I have a GPS coordinate point to denote my origin:


Then I have a series of ENU (east, north up) points in meters that represent the distance from my origin:

-10, -1 //East, north (not using up)
-12, -2
-14, -3
-16, -5

I would like to plot this on a map, I know with google maps you can simply provide an array of coordinates and it builds it for you:


I'm not sure how to convert those ENU points to coordinates. Any ideas?

  • What software, if any, do you have available or are familiar with? One solution would be to treat these coordinates as if they're in Orthographic or a "Local" (if using ArcGIS) with the center set to your origin. Unproject the points to get the lat/lon equivalents. – mkennedy Oct 15 '15 at 16:04
  • @mkennedy I can work with C, Java, Javascript... it's just a matter of figuring out the right algorithm I suppose. – matt Oct 15 '15 at 16:05
