I know the coordinates below are in UTM 36N (due to the EPSG code), and I can convert them with several websites online to wgs 84 and see them in Google Maps. However, been helplessly looking the internet for the conversion function itself, but found none.


Any idea how to convert those to WGS 84?

For javascript you can use proj4.js. Its conversion function is called proj4.
