Please note that before the end of the year 2009 changes may occur in the structure of my website. The applets will survive the changes, but not the links you could have. Big changes in the business will happen soon, so stay tuned ;-)
A special conversion page is dedicated to Michelin maps of France at 1/200000. on line
We have tested this conversion for Fort Boyard (Oleron) and Chapelle Saint-Michel (Serre-Poncon) with good results. The advantage of these two location is that there is no reason they should be misplaced on the map, there is nothing in the vicinity! Another reason is that we had the both Michelin maps (1/200000) and IGN maps (1/25000).
The conversion doesn't work outside France :-(


A special page has been added with User Datum parameters (apparently from GARMIN)

What is WiS working on?

After learning Cocoa,
started learning WebObject to create a E-commerce.
It's a lot of new things to learn,
but I promise to make a link to the e-shop

Books :

"Map Projections - A Reference Manual"
Lev M. Bugayevskiy and John P. Snyder
Ed Taylor & Francis 1995
ISBN 0748403043

This is certainly the must have book for those who want to approach map projections is a mathematical way. This books includes a lot a Russian example of projections that are not so easy to find. The purpose of the book is not to be a kind of cookbook. The subtitle is clear it is a Reference Book.

"Systèmes de référence et Formules de transformation en usage en Belgique"
edited by IGN–NGI (Belgium)

All you wanted to know about coordinates used in Belgium. Contains very usefull examples of Lambert, UTM et geographic coordinates. Many examples are completely worked out. There is a French version and a Dutch version.
