Can you advise what the scale factor of the jpeg file is? I.e. what magnification is required to achieve a scale of 1:50000

TO EMUSONDA: Also experienced the same problem. Try the following: Copy "http://www.spatialreference.co.za/localpoints.asp" into browser search line and then login at the top - hope it works.

Hi there, I am using the map 2626CD (for the farm Syferfontein 303). I was just wondering when the maps were created and where I can find the map name (e.g. 331 8 Cape Town, 1: 250 000)? Thank you.

Is it possible to convert from Lat/Lon to Local SA co-ordinates Cape on this site?

Also in your example you show 26deg 12 min 12 sec as 12.1212 in decimal notation. I thought this would convert to 12.203333.

Dear Spatial Reference developer,
Thank you very much for such a wonderful service. Am an academic at UKZN and find the resource highly useful.
I just realized that previously we could search for a number of control points within a specified radius but this is not the case anymore. For example am trying to search for a list of Trig beacons around Howick in KZN within a radius of about 15km and this facility is not available anymore.

Your assistance will be highly appreciated,
Regards,
Evaristo Musonda

Great service. One minor hiccup, there is no menu in the PC version for the Calculations tab. I.e. it does to the join function and offers no other alternative system.

I was also wondering if a batch file import of co-ords would be possible to allow for batch conversions?

some help with finding coords for town survey marks, or how to use your system could make it work. At this stage finding town survey marks, or municipal mark values is futile

Hi, I have written to pieter@spatialreference.co.za on 3 July requesting info on why my topographic map count was still standing on 20/20,. It was not renewed / regenerated on my login as archaeomaps. I then reregistered under karenvr, downloaded 3 maps. My archaeomaps login still reads 20/20, and my karenvr login 0/0.
How do I register so that I can download the 20 maps per month as per the website.
Can anyone please get back to me.

It would please be very helpful if the boundaries dividing applicable farms on the 1:50 000 topographic map into numbered farm portions were also drawn with each farm portion number denoted accordingly.

Alternatively, do Spatial Reference perhaps have a second set of the 1:50 000 topographic map series with boundaries of portions of applicable farms?

My immediate interest is with farms area covered by the 2430 series/set of topographic maps.

Hi. The link to this site takes me directly to the option to convert GPS coords to X,Y coords and it works well. In the past I could select the calculations drop down menu at the top and select the option to convert X, Y coords to GPS coords. But now it is not working. When I select "calculations" it brings up a calculator to determine the distance between two points. I cannot select anything else. I sent an email to Pieter Louw as the contact person listed under Contact Info and received no reply.

Please explain the workings of this site. You get told you can register for free. After one month you cannot download any maps. If you dig deeper it says register for free for one month. What does one have to do to be able to download maps after one month? To e-mail Website Administrator is a waste of time. You NEVER get a reply. It looks to me more and more like The New South Africa`s website.

Have your current coords been corrected to the latest revision. (May 2014)?

Thank you, worked well.

Suggestion: include the year of revision in the file name of the 1:50000 maps,
e.g. WGS3318AD-_3400.jpg becomes WGS3318AD-_3400_2002.jpg. What does the 3400 mean?
