NAME

Geo::Coordinates::KKJ - converts Finnish Coordinate System from/to WGS84 coordinate system

SYNOPSIS

  use Geo::Coordinates::KKJ;

  # KKJ Basic Coordinate System to WGS84 coordinates
  my ( $lat, $lon ) = KKJxy_to_WGS84lalo('6717563', '2545107');

  # WGS84 coordinates to KKJ Basic Coordinate System
  my ( $x, $y ) = WGS84lalo_to_KKJxy('60.22543759', '24.85437044');

DESCRIPTION

This module converts WGS84 coordinate system to/from KKJ Basic Coordinate System (in Finnish 'Peruskoordinaatisto')

For more information about the Finnish coordinate system please visit http://www.kolumbus.fi/eino.uikkanen/geodocsgb/ficoords.htm

The Perl module has been adapted from a Python module from Olli Lammi http://aapo.rista.net/tmp/coordinates.py Olli's module is in turn based on Matti Aarnio's work http://www.viestikallio.fi/tools/kkj-wgs84.php?LANG=en

Precision

The transformation might contain a precision error of about 0.5m - 2m
