# Land Surveyor Coordinates

I've received these coordinates from a land surveyor and no matter which converter I try or where I insert these coordinates.

I really can't find them in Google Earth or any other map.

If anyone can please assist;

• But you probably know approximately where it should be? That would help a lot. Commented Jul 25, 2019 at 6:19
• Correct, it's near Bela-Bela, South-Africa. But I need to locate and point the exact points Commented Jul 25, 2019 at 8:08
• Here WG 21 was looked after: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/88589/… maybe it helps to find your WG 29 Commented Jul 25, 2019 at 8:25
• Going to epsg.io (epsg.io) and searching for Lo29 gives you two most likely candidates: EPSG 2053 and EPSG 22289. First coordinate in your table is X and second Y. You have to add constant 2,700.000 to Y. See epsg.io/… Commented Jul 25, 2019 at 8:59
• After a quick look, I think @TomazicM is right here. I did try and put the coordinates into QGIS but didn't have a base map to check them. Commented Jul 25, 2019 at 10:44

Just so the answer is in here and not in the comments, I'm adding based on @TomazicM answer above

Going to epsg.io (epsg.io) and searching for Lo29 gives you two most likely candidates: EPSG 2053 and EPSG 22289. First coordinate in your table is X and second Y. You have to add constant 2,700.000 to Y. See https://epsg.io/map#srs=2053&x=72058.999544&y=2754243.758563&z=9&layer=streets

• @TomazicM Are you sure the first coordinate is X and the second is Y? The left column header is Y and the right column header is X. Are the headers wrong?

• @CSK Yes, I'm sure. Yust click one the epsg.io link in the above answer any you'll see Bela-Bela, as it was clearified as destination in comments to the question. Commented Jul 28, 2019 at 14:31
