Ok,

I have co-ordinates in northing and eastings UTM Southern Hemisphere zone 50E and i want to convert them to WGS84 lat long. I can read them in fine but there is no way of defining the fact that they are in the Souther Hemisphere as opposed to the Northern Hemisphere any more (SMS10).... Am i missing something obvious, or has everyone in the northern hemisphere gone into denial about the existence of the Southern Hemisphere, or potentially worse... are the developers of SMS only interested in plying their product to those in the northern hemisphere.....?

Hi Brett,

Sorry about the confusion.

I'm not sure what changed or why.

I assure you that we are interested in fully supporting the Southern Hemisphere. We intend for our product to be usable worldwide, but obviously some sort of mistake has been made. I will try to determine what changed.

Thanks for letting us know.
