Geo::Coordinates::OSGB and Geo::Coordinates::OSTN02 offer an implementation
of co-ordinate conversion for England, Wales, and Scotland based on formulae
published by the Ordnance Survey of Great Britain.
These modules will convert accurately between an OSGB national grid
reference and lat/lon coordinates based on the OSGB geoid model.
To get more accurate results you need to combine this module with its
companion Geo::Coordinates::OSTN02 which implements the transformation that
now defines the relationship between GPS survey data based on WGS84 and the
British National Grid.
