08 Jul 2014 deg2utm Function to convert lat/lon vectors into UTM coordinates (WGS84) Author: Rafael Palacios Kyle

Oops, I got it to work - - just my newness to the software.

Forgot to specify the outputs I wanted.

For people like me (getting into matlab), make sure to put your outputs you want in the command window.
IE: [x,y,utmzone] = deg2utm(Lat,Lon), where if you want x, y, and the utmzone you have to tell matlab that. Else it will only give you x (which is what I was getting before hand).
EDU>> [x,y,utmzone] = deg2utm(38.130587, -99.081752)
x = 4.9284e+05
y = 4.2203e+06
utmzone = 14 S

07 Jul 2014 deg2utm Function to convert lat/lon vectors into UTM coordinates (WGS84) Author: Rafael Palacios Aleksander

Hi.
i am unsure if this is a issue or not.
if i input the following:
[x,y]=deg2utm([5153.7870,5153.7870],[00425.8690,00425.8685])
i expect that the x output is the samme for both cordinates, and that i have a diferense of only 0.58m in the y, how ever the diference in x is about 1M and in y about 22,5M. any thoughts ?

This one didn't work for me. There is this one on the file exchange as well: utm2ll. It worked and was easy to use (in particular for vectors and matrices).

Thanks for this .m file !

What I like: Useful function and good explanation in the help

What I dislike: just one small comment, input values have to be in float format, not accepting doubles (since 'cos' function does not accept them). Nonetheless, I think it's a great function.
