Waypoint Workbench

WW is an Excel spreadsheet designed to convert between the different formats for latitude/longitude. All of these spreadsheets are free to use. The only thing we ask is that you drop us a mail at this address. The reason for this is so that we can mail out notices of any bug fixes/enhancements to existing users as soon as they are spotted. We currently have over 200 users of the sheets and we like to keep track of the number of users out there. It's not much to ask is it?

If these do not do what you want either mail script language=javascript> with an improvement suggestion or checkout or links section for other software that might.

We are very proud of our new version of the spreadsheet. For full details of what it does and how to use it go here.

Some highlights are:

  • Use it to open a multicache page or GPX file and watch it strip out all the coordinates from the text - no more entering multicache information by hand!
  • Import multiple files in a single step.
