In my last post I said that I had found a site with an algorithm that would convert WGS84 (lat/lon) coordinates to the Greek Grid system (GGRS87). I successfully converted that algorithm into a .php program and I present it here. The lines commented out are the lines from the algorithm. The immediately following line is my php interpretation of this. As it is it rounds down to the whole meter. But its accuracy appears to be of the order of one one-thousandth of a meter (millimeter). Plenty good enough for the likes of us.

Commentary

You'll need a php interpreter to run this, of course. If you want to copy this stand-alone program from Google Drive

then click on this.
The main routine does nothing but call the routine ToGreekGrid and print out the Easting and Northing results. You'll modify that, of course. I see no barrier now to my adding the GGRS87 coordinates to every entry in the Mycenaean Atlas Project.

If you try ths then let me know what you think.
