U.S. National Grid

This item of interest recently came from Delorme... U.S. National Grid Available in XMap - If you're not already familiar with the U.S. National Grid (USNG), chances are you soon will be. Recent initiatives at the federal, state, and local levels have been promoting the idea of a consistent and uniform grid coordinate system that will provide an efficient reference mechanism for all location-based systems and services. To that end, the USNG has emerged as the preferred reference system and presentation format for National Spatial Data Infrastructure applications. For more information on the USNG, visit www.fgdc.gov/usng.
