Conversion of East North values to Lat and Long values for Mapping

HI i have a bunch of Easting/Northing co-ordinates that id like converted to Lat/Longs to show on the map visualisation in Powerbi


I know i can use external software and convert the values however the values will be coming in via an powerapp in easting/northing due to an old piece of hardware.


I have tried using the following


However the values i get are incorrect, im assuming that the guy wrote that for his grid not my grid, is anyone able to show myself how to do this? or how they have done it.?

HI @Ohhhhhhfffs,

I'd like to suggest you use web connector to invoke correspond convert rest API to handle these data conversion instead of manually calculations.

Hey mate,


Any chance you could break down the steps a bit further for me?


The easting and northings i need to convert are recorded by fellow workers and are currently kept in a sharepoint database,


The way i manually do it is i use this site

Which after selecting the zone it batch converts the easting and northing to lat and longs.


Im confused to what exactly im supposed to do with your answer? Is the Rest API Just for getting data off the web? so am i supposed to find a site that converts?
