DescriptionThe Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) international, planar, grid system is described and shown to offer greater simplicity, efficiency and accuracy for plotting wildlife locations than the more familiar Latitude-Longitude (Latilong) and Section-Township-Range (Cadastral) systems, and the State planar system. Use of the UTM system is explained with examples.
