I've come across code which specifies UTM=(32, 'U'). Is there a common convention around UTM I can understand this through, or is there not enough information here to determine the geographic location?


UTM 32U is one tile of the UTM 32N zone. This image from Wikipedia (here the link to the following image) should explain it clearly:

The 'U' in this UTM notation refers to a specific lattitude band I believe- see 'Latittude bands' here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Transverse_Mercator_coordinate_system
