[UW-GIS-L] Transformation of WGS84 to UTM?

Whenever I had to implement projection transformations, I went straight to
Initially an MIT project I believe, it has matured into a stable, open
source product that allows transformations between almost any known
projection (they advertise about 100 or so). Their libraries are easy to
use, and they even have VB bindings.
