Charlotte is not the capital of NC, Raleigh is the capital.

In your table to the upper right, you should specify that the UTM zone you are referring to is actually UTM (MGRS) and not straight UTM. In my experience in the GIS field UTM zones are simply N and S (north and South) referring to it location above or below the Equator. This is misleading and could cause newbies to enter in the wrong UTM zone. NC in straight UTM is 17N (north of the equator) and not 17S. Since you are actually referring to UTM (MGRS zones--a derivative of UTM and not UTM itself), this is incorrect.

I didn't know NC was south of the equator (Zone 17S). Wow! The world really is upside down.
