Dear all,

I'm using georeferenced herbarium specimen for species distributions modeling purposes. Many of the specimens have GPS coordinates in UTM, which I wish to convert into Latitude\Longitude. Does anyone of you know a tool, either spreadsheet or online service, that can be used to convert GPS coordinates from UTM into Latitude/Longitude? There are some online tools but these can only be used for conversions of single locations. I’m looking for a tool that is capable of converting batches of say 100 or more locations in one run.
Suggestions are welcome!

Best wishes,
