Hi There,

I am trying to convert a latlong point to UTM. To define UTM projection, I need to calculate zone for the point. I am trying to figure out the best way to do this. One way to do this would be use longitude values to find the proper zone. This would require lot of coding. I am curious if there is a better way of doing this.
