Hi Karl, I need to convert some large files with XY Easting/Northing coordinates to latitude and longitude. Do you have any idea how to do this in STATA or GIS? I assume the input data is in some tabular format that ArcGIS can read – MS Excel, Access, CSV, etc, and the input coordinates are British National Grid. So this is how it works: Note: If you work with Geodatabase instead of Shapefiles the X and Y fields will be added automatically, you don’t need to calculate them.

I assume the input data is in some tabular format that ArcGIS can read – MS Excel, Access, CSV, etc, and the input coordinates are British National Grid. So this is how it works: Fo to File &gt, Add Data. Add your input table. This can be an Excel worksheet, CSV file, dBase file, MAS Acess table, Geodatabase table, …. Right-click in the data frame and set the coordinate system to whatever your Easting/Northing is in, e.g. British National Grid . Click the icon next to Output Coordinate System and select Geographic &gt, World &gt, WGS1984, OK. From the transformation drop-down lists select ‘OSGB_1936_to_WGS_1984_Petroleum’ . Export to other software (MS Excel, SPSS, etc.): In the table click the top left button &gt, Export. Export to dBase or Text. Note: If you work with Geodatabase instead of Shapefiles the X and Y fields will be added automatically, you don’t need to calculate them. Source.
