The UTM coordinate systems displayed in Google Maps

It does not look like that, but the resource that PlexScape Web Services has Transform coordinates and visualize them in Google Maps Is an interesting exercise to understand how coordinate systems work in different regions of the world.

To do this, select from the panel that displays Coordinate Systems, the country and then appear above the different Coordinate Systems and Datum that the service has integrated with the zones that apply. By clicking on the magnifying glass, you can see the geometry drawn on the map as shown in the image of some used in Brazil.

I take to summarize those that could be of interest in our context although there is for all the other countries and even some that apply of regional way like Europe, South America, etc.

For all these systems, with their different zones you can visualize coordinates in Google Earth in both projected and geographical units. There is also a message from them, that if a particular system is not there, they integrate it if they are reported.

  1. Hello good night I want to know what is the coordinate system that I can use to reproject some data that I have of Panama in Google Earth in a kmz, they are in WGS 84, apparently I must use Nad27 but when transforming the information it says that it does not have a defined coordinate system, on the other hand if I tell you to define it, it does "transform" it, but it is poorly projected, what should I do? Thanks for answering
