Conversion problem..Help!!

Tue Jan 04, 2011 7:42 pm

Hello, I am very very new to this topic. I am trying to convert state plane coordinates in Los Angeles County, CA to Lat/Long. I foudn this software listed in a MS MapPoint Forum. I am trying to do the conversion, but I'm a bit lost now. When I put in my state plane coordinates as a test, I end up either in the indian ocean or China. I thought the coordinates are NAD27 Region V, but I may be wrong, I have tried every region in CA I can find but I am not having any luck and I still end up in the ocean each time. Here are the coordiantes I am trying to convert

6501986
1738449

those coordinates should come back to

Longitude: -118.196461
Latitude: 33.769137

But unfortunantly they do not. I am on my trial period of the software to see if it will work for me, but I'm stuck on how to do a batch conversion and what to select.

Any help would be appreciated.
