Dutch grid conversion

This tool converts WGS84 coordinates (as usually used while geocaching) to Dutch grid coordinates and vice-versa. Dutch grid coordinates can also be called Rijksdriehoeks-coordinates, RD-coordinates or Amersfoort coordinates and this is an example: 192309 325406 (Easting Northing or X Y).

Some sample notations:
N12.345 E6.789 (WGS84)
-12 34.567 12 56.789 (WGS84)
S12 34 12.567 W12 56 12.789 (WGS84)
192309 325406 (RD)
X: 192308m Y: 325403m (RD)
Point A 
Dutch grid conversion

Dutch grid coordinates are used for the European part of The Netherlands. The x-value runs from West to East and the y-value from South to North. Since it is a cartesian coordinate system it's very usefull for mathematical calculations. The central point of the system is located at the top of the Onze Lieve Vrouwetoren in Amersfoort, hence the other name Amersfoort coordinates. 155000 463000 are the coordinates for this location. Due to this choice x and y values are always positive for the European part of The Netherlands and y is always larger than x.
