MGRS - New Kid on the Block

For those looking for a reference site for the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) - the world-wide equivalent of the U.S. National Grid - a new website titled, "MGRS Data", has recently come online.  To checkout the offering, go here: http://mgrs-data.org/.

Comment: Provided MGRS is referenced to North American Datum 1983 (NAD83), inside the United States, MGRS and USNG are functionally equivalent to each other.  Consequently, many of the items available from this page will have application to USNG implementation efforts.
