This package provides a series of functions to deal with conversion and transformations of coordinates in the Datum Austria

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datum_Austria

and here specifically of the Bundesmeldenetz, the former federal cartographic datum of Austria. The Bundesmeldenetz is already widely replaced by UTM coordinates but much legacy data is still encoded in BMN coordinates. Unlike UTM, the BMN uses the Bessel reference ellipsoid and uses lat0 at Hierro (canary islands), which makes transformations tedious. For more information see

Usage is covered by test cases. For installation and further info navigate to the parent package.
