How do I convert Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) data to Latitude/Longitude data in Didger?

Didger can convert data between many different coordinate systems, including UTM and Lat/Long. To use Didger to convert UTM data to Lat/Long data, please follow the steps below.
  1. Import the data file using File | Import.
  2. When the Define Import Options dialog opens, select the appropriate data import options, such as defining which fields of data are the X coordinate and Y coordinate data.
  3. Click the Import button and the Assign Coordinate System dialog opens.
  4. Set the Coordinate Space Type to Projected and expand the coordinate system tree to UTM (Predefined | Projected Systems | UTM).
  5. Select the Datum and Zone in which your UTM coordinates are located
  6. Click OK. Your data will display in the plot window.
  7. Go to Map | Change Projection and expand the coordinate system tree to Predefined | Geographic.
  8. Select the datum to specify the Lat/Lon coordinate system.
  9. Click OK and the data will appear in Lat/Long.
  10. Go to File | Export and select DAT as the file type. This will export the data in Lat/Long.
