|See also: GeoToUTMZone|
The globe is divided into 60 sixty longitudinal UTM zones which are 6 degrees wide, extending from 80 degrees South to 84 degrees North. Each zone is split into 20 bands which are 8 degrees wide, extending north and south from the equator. The northernmost band is 12 degrees wide.
Please note that there are several special UTM zones between 0 degrees and 36 degrees longitude above 72 degrees North (covering Svalbard), and a special zone covering southwestern Norway.
