0. Syntax:[long,lonm,lons,latg,latm,lats,Direction] = UTMIP(instruccion)

1. With this little routine, you can get the transformation or the conversion of UTM coordinates to spherical coordinates, you can choose different ellipsoids to execute the conversion.

2. Inputs:
x, y, utm zone, and hemisphere.

3. Outputs:
Latitude, Longitude and the reference of the Longitude.

4. Notes:
It's only necessary to run the function.
I designed the window in order to display in a screen of 1024 x 768.
This is the "inverse problem" of Spherical coordinates to UTM coordinates. You can also see the routine:
