Florida West SP Problem

I am trying to translate an image from:

State Plane, Florida West, NAD83, US Survey Feet
into
UTM 17, NAD83, US Survey Feet.

It wasn't coming up exactly where I expected it to so I ran a test with the GM coordinate converter and found a discrepancy between Global Mapper's result and the identical output of several other coordinate conversion packages.

I'm not sure what could be causing this but any help you could offer would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

Chad

    Chad,

    What version of Global Mapper are you using? I just tried in v13.1.3 using the Tools->Coordinate Convertor and got the following in GM:

    UTM Easting: 1303820.8059
    UTM Northing: 9810199.8958

    This seems to agree exactly with Corpscon (at least to the number of significant digits that Corpscon shows).

    Thanks,

    Mike,

    Thanks for checking that out so quickly. I'm using v12.01... I didn't realize that the projection definitions would have changed between versions. I guess this will be impetus to finally upgrade.

    Thanks again for your help.
