Subject: [TMG] Real world UTM example, SHORT

Here is a real world example of the zone boundary "gotcha" in UTM.
There is a medium size graveyard on Littleton Road in North Monroe, New
Hampshire. (I have ancestors who lived in the area.) The west and north
corners of the graveyard are on the road, roughly 100 meters apart
SW-NE. Here are the UTM coordinates as given by Google Earth (WGS84 datum).
West corner: 18T 739228m E, 4910293m N
North corner: 19T 260741m E, 4910357m N
Note the difference in eastings. The numbers do not even seem to relate.
I would say "I rest my case", but you know me better than that. See my
"tedious" message for details.
