Grid System for Sandia Mountains
** (ver 1)

**Note: This page contains information pertaining to the
original version of my Sandia Grid, which I no longer use. It is here
solely for historical purposes. For current Grid information

The Sandia Grid System assigns letters to minutes of latitude and longitude:
Latitude begins at 35°0'n and sequences northward through
35°22'.
Longitude begins at 106°15'w and sequences westward through
106°37'.
Format for point names is lat-grid-label, lon-grid-label,
seconds-of-latitude, seconds-of-longitude.
Example: The Pino Trailhead is labeled KQ4813. This point is
at lat
grid K (35°9'n) & lon grid Q (106°28'w) with seconds values of 48"lat and
13"lon. Actual coördinate value is 35°9'48"n 106°28'13"w.
Since current USGS and USFS maps of this area still refer to
North American Datum
1927 (nad27), the grid and point designations are based on that datum.
To avoid confusion with the numerals zero and one, the letters I L O
are not used.
