Im trying to convert lat/long into UTM, but have some problems in it. First I get my coordinates in lat and long

latitude_wgs84_radians: 0.924593
longitude_wgs84_radians: 0.176054

Then Im trying to convert it with GeographicLib and get

latitude: 185532
longitude: 102251

which is false, 'cause it should be near


Then I was trying to correct my code and get after converting to UTM

latitude: 568000 
longitud: 5.866e+06 //this one is not correct

at least, my code

double lat = latitude_wgs84_radians * 180 / M_PI;
double lon = longitude_wgs84_radians * 180 / M_PI;
int zone;
bool northp;
double x, y;
UTMUPS::Forward(lat, lon, zone, northp, x, y);
  • What is lat/lon (or M_PI)? I get lat = 52.97527666734, lon = 10.0871511663962. If I assume WGS84, and zone 32N (AKA EPSG:32632), I get 572999.5882819915, 5870073.21873018 using a different software package (Esri). – mkennedy Nov 16 '17 at 18:44
  • @mkennedy latitude: 568000 longitud: 5.866e+06, this are the converted coordinates from lat/long to UTM, but the values are not correct. – user234110 Nov 16 '17 at 18:49
  • No, those are projected coordinates in UTM. They're no longer latitude and longitude values but x (easting) and y (northing) values. – mkennedy Nov 16 '17 at 20:20
