In Vers there are now both North and South UTM zone projections, avoiding the use of negative northings, as is usual in practice. The UTM projections cannot reach the poles, and they are usually supplemented with two UPS (Universal Polar Stereographic) charts, now .

Universal Polar Stereographic system. The UTM system leaves round holes at the top and bottom of the world. These are filled in by the two zones of the Universal Polar Stereographic (UPS) coordinate system. UPS North covers the area from 84ºN to the north pole; UPS South covers the area from 80ºS to the south pole. Definition of universal polar stereographic grid in the dictionary.

Universal Polar Stereographic (UPS) is a grid system based on the polar stereographic projection applied to the Earth's polar regions north of 84 degrees north (84°N) and south of 80 degrees south (80°S). In the polar regions the UPS grid system is used. at the poles, a Universal Polar Stereographic projection (UPS) is used; each zone is divided further into strips of 8 degrees latitude; beginning at 80 degrees S, are assigned letters C through X, O and I are omitted; Distortion.

to reduce the distortion across the area covered by each zone, scale along the central meridian is reduced to Meridians and parallels in the Universal Polar Stereographic Projection, Left: South Zone, Right: North Zone 52 Meridians and parallels imposed on a Universal Polar Stereographic grid (north zone) 56 MGRSmeter square identification, in.

Hager. POSITIONING IN UPS The Universal Polar Stereographic (UPS) Systems coordinates are based on a family of two Polar Stereographic map projections, one for each pole.

The origin of the UPS coordinate system is at the poles, where X=2,m and Y=2,m. For UPS North see ; or for UPS South see. Universal Polar Stereographic Universal Polar Stereographic (UPS) maps areas north of 84° north and south of 80° south that aren't included in the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate system.

There are two coordinate systems centered either on the North or South Pole, covering the Arctic and Antarctic regions. Universal Polar Stereographic Grid[¦yünə¦vərsəl ′pōlər ¦sterēō¦grafik ′grid] (mapping) A particular grid based upon the polar stereographic projection according to specifications laid down by military authorities; it may be superimposed on any map.

universal polar stereographic grid A military grid system for use in limited. The Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) is the geocoordinate standard used by NATO militaries for locating points on the earth. The MGRS is derived from the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) grid system and the universal polar stereographic (UPS) grid system, but uses a different labeling convention.

The MGRS is used for the entire earth. The Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) is a grid-based system used to represent locations on the universal transverse Mercator (UTM) and universal polar stereographic (UPS) grid systems, expressed as an alphanumeric string.

An MGRS coordinate defines an area on the Earth's surface as opposed to a specific point. Get this from a library!
