Is there any formula to convert Lat/Lon into Gauss-Krueger(6 degrees)[WGS84] like one found in Global Mapper's Coordinate Conversion Tool?

    Gauss Krueger is also known as Transverse Mercator, so the formulas for converting Transverse Mercator to lat/lon would be the ones to use. Of course I would recommend just using the Global Mapper SDK to convert points programmatically rather than writing something yourself, that way you know you are getting a correct result to start with.
