  • USDA Forest Service: explains why some GPS navigation systems display coordinates in different formats. Gives information on how to make conversions to NAD83 from NAD27 as well as converting NAD27 GPS data to NAD83 coordinates.
  • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration: provides a tool that uses NADCON (North American Datum Conversion) to convert latitude and longitude from NAD27 to NAD83 and vice versa.
