Hi. I have coordinates that someone else collected for me. I need to convert it to a meaningful value that I can map (it's one of about 25 similar coordinates). For other coordinates I have used Lat/Long (degrees, minutes, seconds). One of the values the colleague gave me is (exactly as given to me): 340210 E 2105771 N. The collector of this datum knows nothing about the standard used!!!

I know the coordinate corresponds to a location within a few hundred meters of the peak of Loma Casabito in the Dominican Republic. Therefore, I would expect a Latitude/Longitude close to 19° 2'N 70°31'W (though more detailed), which is an approximation of a known location near to the same peak (for simplification, part minutes and seconds have been removed).

For a different mountain (Loma Barbacoa), I have been told that 358516 E 2041180 N is equivalent to or within a few meters of 18°27'21.97" but even knowing this has not helped me find out the original coordinate standard used or the means of converting it to Lat/Long.

I have tried converting the original coordinates with Google Earth and several online conversion sites. However, some simply don't make a conversion while others do but to Lat/Long values that make no sense at all (completely in the wrong part of the world).

If there's anyone who recognises the standard being used and can tell me it or who can advise on how to go about getting a conversion, thanks in advance for any info or suggestions.
