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.

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.

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?
