The BOREAS Information System

BOREAS Coordinate Transformation Software

BOR_CORD, developed for the Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) Information System (BORIS), is a C program that performs geographic coordinate conversions over the BOREAS study area of 51 degrees North to 60 degrees North latitude and 111 degrees West to 93 degrees West longitude.
The BOR_CORD program converts coordinates between the BOREAS X, Y grid system, Latitude and Longitude, and UTM Coordinates. These coordinate conversions are performed within and between the NAD27 and NAD83 datums. Users may input coordinates interactively on the screen or may use an input ASCII file. Either NAD27 or NAD83 datum coordinates for UTM or latitude and longitude may be entered. The BOREAS X,Y grid values are defined only in the NAD83 datum. Program output is to the screen or to an ASCII file.
