British Isles Grid Reference library

The British Isles Grid Reference (bigr) library is a Javascript library for working with British, Irish or Channel Island grid references.

British grid references are those associated with reference system known as 'OSGB 1936 / British National Grid' (epsg:27700). Irish grid references are those associated with the reference sytem known as 'TM75 / Irish Grid' (epsg:29903). Channel Island grid references are derived from the UTM grid - 'WGS 84 / UTM zone 30N' using a shorthand method whereby the leading '30U' prefix is removed. This gives grid references for the Channel Islands with prefixes of 'WA' or 'WV'.
