This looks like murcator projection to me but I could be
wrong.  If it is, I don't know of any way to convert it
back to standard latlong as Murcator is not an exact
representation of latlong data.  FYI, google maps uses this
as well as some other map imaging software.


A competent navigator is not the skipper who can press a button
and follow a       command, but one who uses all the tools at his
 disposal to navigate his course safely and efficiently.
