Note on Converted Coordinates:

This web page utilizes an internal program to convert coordinate values between NAD27 and NAD83. Users of this web page must keep in mind that National Geodetic Survey (NGS) has adjusted NAD83 coordinate values several times since the original adjustment published in 1986. For the New England states, major adjustments were published in 1992 and 1996 for NAD83 coordinate values. The conversion program within this web page converts NAD27 values to the most recent NAD83, 1996 (NAD83/96) adjustment values.
