Description Alejandro García Montoro 2015-05-10 23:57:48 UTC
Public static functions lonToString() and latToString() from GeoDataCoordinates.cpp receive only longitude or latitude values, respectively.
UTM functions need both values to obtain any of its components: zone, latitude band, easting or northing.
Hence, a refactoring is needed in order to cope with the different coordinate systems used.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
This can be done in any non-standard zones and with any module/plugin that uses lonToString or latTostring. The problem showed now is just an example (in Bergen and making use of the MarbleWidgetPopupMenu):

1. Add a bookmark in Bergen, southwest Norway (or in any other non-standard zone).
2. Click on the created bookmark.

Actual Results:  
The zone displayed is 31

Expected Results:  
The zone displayed should be 32

Thank you for reaching out, Justin. I have not contributed to Marble, nor used it, since then, so I don't really know if this issue still persists. I'm changing the status to resolved, a new one can be opened if needed.

No, unfortunately this issue is still valid - I wasn't quite aware of it.
