OSGB to Long/Lat Conversion

Posted on 2005-05-01
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I'm after a T-SQL UDF that converts OSGB eastings and northings into decimal longitude and latitude pairs. Currently I use a Java package called via the CFOBECT tag (Cold Fusion) that performs this conversion. Ideally I want this conversion done solely on the database server rather than have to rely on the CF application server as well.
