13Jcoord is a collection of Java classes that provide functions for handling
14various co-ordinate systems and converting between them. Currently, OSGB
15(Ordnance Survey of Great Britain) grid references, UTM (Universal Transverse
16Mercator) references and latitude/longitude are supported. A function is
17also provided to find the surface distance between two points of latitude
18and longitude.

20When using the OSGB conversions, the majority of applications use the
21WGS84 datum rather than the OSGB36 datum. Conversions between the two
22data were added in v1.1 - the conversions should be accurate to within
235m or so. If accuracy is not important (i.e. to within 200m or so),
24then it isn't necessary to perform the conversions.

26Examples of how to use the classes in Jcoord can be found in the
27uk.me.jstott.jcoord.Test class

29See http://www.jstott.me.uk/jcoord/ for latest releases and information.

32DISCLAIMER
33
34Accuracy of the co-ordinate conversions contained within the Jcoord
35package is not guaranteed. Use of the conversions is entirely at your
36own risk and I cannot be held responsible for any consequences of
37errors created by the conversions. I do not recommend using the package
38for mission-critical applications.
