Description:
Abstract: The United States National Grid (USNG) is a nonproprietary alphanumeric referencing system derived from the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) that is being promoted to increase the interoperability of location services appliances with printed map products by providing a nationally consistent grid reference system. The grids used for Minnesota are 14, 15, and 16 at a scale of 1,000 meters.
Purpose: The purpose of the USNG is to provide an easier way to standardize paper maps to lessen the hassle of converting between multiple reference systems.
