Howdy, I popped over to Germany the other weekend to see some friends and it occurred to me that it would be nice to do some walking in the area. It's mountainous and very picturesque, and I can always walk around with a shed load of weight to boot I tried flicking through maps but to be honest book shops were a little lightweight on them. Reading up on coordinate systems and things I was wondering what would be the most applicable, UTM in the 32U sector was on the map that I looked at. Then there appears to be Gauss Kruger? There also seems to be some reference to a Potsdam system but I can't find much info. I speak the lingo but trying to understand some of the info is tricky for my standard of language as it gets rapidly technical. Any suggestions or pointers are welcome. Cheers, WAID p.s. By the looks of the (admittedly only one) map I saw, we're spoiled for mapping data as this was a bag o shite.
