Howdy folks.

The Chorus website makes available a great deal of technical information regarding their RBI rollout (eg. Cabinet Migration Schedule - http://www.chorus.co.nz/file/8569/webmigration-November-2012.xls, and so on...). This is great. The spreadsheets they make available certainly contain useful information. Several of these spreadsheets contain (X,Y) coordinates of various pieces of equipment.

Is there a way of mapping these coordinates -- manually if needed, I'm only particularly interested in a handful of locations -- to an actual location?

For example, where are:

TAK/M25028556043804TAK/Y25002126041450TAK/V24848786050427TAK/R24934636031893TAK/P24947656040533TAK/E24946406024526TAK/AL25062636043508TAK/AH24921716044318TAK/AD25023816042728TAK/AC24905576040182TAK/AA24901126033094TAK/H24951056019131
Cheers,

Actually a better way to do the whole spreadsheet is to click on "free format entry advanced option" from the LINZ page above, and paste the whole two columns from your spreadsheet (NB transpose X & Y to match input format) in there to generate two new columns for your spreadsheet with WGS84 coordinates, ready for Google Maps
