Convert coordinates lambert 93 {[Coordinate X],[Coordinate Y]} into Latitude and Longitude

Hello everyone,

It has been a few weeks I am using Power Query and Power BI, however there are still a very important amount of things I have to learn.

Usually when I am confronting an issue, I would find the answer through the community. However, I am now stuck with the following problem and I do think there is an answer with Python from what I read from other website.

However, I am totally unfamiliar with Python and I do hope there is another way to do it on Power Query.

Here is my issue, I have two columns {[Coordinate X],[Coordinate Y]}, which are in lambert 93 format for instance:

{[722364.9],[6919869.7]}

But Power BI seems to only accept latitude and longitude coordinates.

How can we convert it but massively both columns?

Indeed there is a website where you can do it one by one, but there are more than 100k rows

Convertisseur de coordonnées gratuit en ligne (tool-online.com)

And another link I thought would help me was Python but my knowledge is for the moment too limited:

How to convert Lambert 93 to longitude and latitude with python 3 (moonbooks.org)

Many thanks in advance if someone could guide me!

Best regards

Hi @Yrmouf

It shouldn't be very complicated - have you tried asking ChatGPT for the solution?

"Give me the powerquery code to convert lambert projection to wgs"

If that doesn't work please get back here and I'll have a look.

Hi @ams1 ,

Thanks for your advice, I tried so, but the code does not seem to work, I ended up with the following code

``````let
Source = #"RPLS", // replace ``` with the name of your source table
x = [Coordonnée X], // replace [Coordonnée X] with the name of your Lambert X coordinate column
y = [Coordonnée Y], // replace [Coordonnée Y] with the name of your Lambert Y coordinate column
wgs84 = List.Transform(
CoordinateSystem.Transform( #"EPSG:2154", #"EPSG:4326", {x, y} ),
each Number.Round(_, 7)
),
lat = wgs84{0},
long = wgs84{1}
),
#"Expanded Lat_Long" = Table.ExpandListColumn(#"Added Custom", "Lat_Long"),
#"Renamed Columns" = Table.RenameColumns(#"Expanded Lat_Long", {"Lat_Long", "Lat_Long_WGS"}),
#"Expanded Lat_Long_WGS" = Table.ExpandListColumn(#"Renamed Columns", "Lat_Long_WGS"),
#"Extracted Values" = Table.TransformColumns(#"Expanded Lat_Long_WGS", {{"Lat_Long_WGS", each Text.Combine(List.Transform(_, Text.From), ","), type text}}),
#"Split Column by Delimiter" = Table.SplitColumn(#"Extracted Values", "Lat_Long_WGS", Splitter.SplitTextByDelimiter(",", QuoteStyle.Csv), {"Latitude", "Longitude"}),
#"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Split Column by Delimiter",{{"Latitude", type number}, {"Longitude", type number}})
in
#"Changed Type"  It looked like after prompting CHatgpt that `CoordinateSystem.Transform` function is the source of the problem as it looks like I have to load a library, but I am not quite sure to do so when I looked into the one it adviced me to load but I guess I have to download from somewhere, but where to download it and where to load it?`Spatial = Extension.Load("Microsoft.Mashup.Engine1.Library.Spatial")` Also, why the code does not take into account the variable "Spatial"?Many thanks for your helpHave a nice day```

What system are converting the Lambert 93 coordinates into?  WGS84 or something else?

Hello @ronrsnfld ,

It would be WGS84 indeed to fit powerBI visualization.
