I would like a simple tool for conversion back and forth between State Plane Coordinates and Lat/Lon - maybe a spreadsheet format would be best. Anyone?

Hi Gary!
Have you tried Geocalc of BlueMarble? Though not user friendly, it is also onboard Civil 3D, Land Desktop, Microsurvey CAD/inCAD, Carlson Survey, and many more.
You can also develop your own utility in Excel using VBA. I am not really sure of the map development system employed in State Plane but to my memory, it is a Transverse Mercator system. Granting it is indeed a TM system and contrary to "Grid to Geographic Conversion", the programming curve for "Geographic to Grid Conversion" is a straightforward thing as it doesn't involve iteration process.
I usually develop my own surveying tools in excel using VBA or .NET.

Hey Gary. Read your comment or request for info. We use a data collector with Carlson software and in the calculator section there is a screen for conversions for lat/long to state plane and vice versa. There is a drop-down menu were you enter your zone. They may have all of them covered. IO know I saw all 3 Florida zones and many other states and possibly even Puerta Rico. I don't have one in front of me but basically just fill in the blank boxes and hit OK or calculate and the results will be calculated. If you don't own Carlson data collection software I'm sure you don't want to rush right out and buy one. I don't know of an "free" online o0r any online source but maybe someone does.

I know I have Carlson on my Promark3RTK but I do not recall a calculator. I will look for it. I got the Total Station package loaded on it but doubt it would be in that module. I have a friend with the Carlson Collector - I will plan to ask him. The spreadsheet still sounds best if I could find one that I could enter either conversions. Let me know please if you find one. No urgent needs. I might be able to somehow do it in my GNSS software that comes with the ProMark. I know it gives me both when I process actual logged points. I bet my friend Phil Stevenson could tell me if the GNSS will do it.

The calculator that works in FAST Survey on the ProMark3 is described on page 62 of the ProMark3 RTK Reference Manual. It is on the COGO tab of the FAST Survey menu.
Reply by Gary Breisch on October 13, 2010 at 3:39pm
FANTASTIC!!! Thanks Phil - I found it on the PM3 and tried it. Works great. Now if I can find a spreadsheet to add to my collection to do the calculations for me, LOL.
Reply by Gary Breisch on October 27, 2010 at 3:40pm
You got batteries? I did and very happy to have some 3960mA 3.7V battery units that fit right into my PM3 for about half the cost of what others have quoted me. I worked hard to find a good deal and I took the risk and ordered two for about the cost of one from my regular supplier. Send me a buck and I will tell you my secret. PayPal me at gary@gbreisch.com - well worth it. Also I got a 3200mA battery to replace the whimpy 1300mA that came with a new cell phone. My cost was at least half of what I would pay at WalMart, LOL for anything close to as good. Now if I could at least find that touch screen part.

Gary,

 

Have you tried CORPSCON? I have used it for years to do just that, you can convert a single point or multiple points either direction. I added a link to the tool box

 

hope all is well my friend
