    Default GPS datums

    Is there a place on the kdwpt website to find out which datums are used on each lake, some are marked with datums and some arenít, also I wonder why the website doesnít just put all brush piles in with the same datum. Maybe I am doing something wrong but I donít know how to convert between datums thanks in advance

    You may need to use a converter found with google. There is also one that will show you where it is on a map.

    dlsloan,

    I do not know of a page on the KDWPT website to find a listing of datums for project lakes.

    KDWPT Fisheries Biologists use Datum WGS 84 as the standard.

    Many volunteer groups have placed cubes in Kansas waters under the direction of the District Fisheries Biologists. I suppose there is the possibility that coordinates could be reported back to KDWPT using a different datum.

    You can always contact the local fisheries biologist for the lake in question for more detailed information.

    I appreciate the KDWP's efforts in regard to providing GPS data of fish attracting cover.
    If memory serves (and it may not) I think I went from KDWP to Google Earth Pro to HBPC to my birds; I have slept since then so...
    Google Earth Pro has different GPS formats in the tools tab - options , for conversion.

    Thank you, my problem is some of the formats are different, for example Shawnee state lake uses a format which I haven’t been able to find on my garmin
