No module name geonav_transform.geonav_conversions

When I try to use geonav_transform.geonav_conversions to convert latitude & longitude.
I’m getting a ImportError: no module name geonav_transform.geonav_conversions.

Hello @HrithikVerma ,

Is this from a specific exercise of the course? Could you please point out which one? Thanks in advance.

@albertoezquerro Fuse Sensor Data to Improve Localization Course
It is related exercise where we transfer between utm & lat long

Please indicate in which exercise are you having this problem. Please post your code and any other details required to understand in which situation are you having the problem.
We need more details in order to identify where your problem is.

I think this error is there because geonav_transform package for python is not installed. I have seen this error in my local system as well so I used another python package name utm.

It looks like the package geonav_transform is not installed in the system (it should be).
We are going to correct this error in the next days.

In the mean time, you can install the package in your area yourself and keep learning. For that, do the following steps:

cd /home/user/catkin_ws/src
git clone
cd /home/user/catkin_ws/
source devel/setup.bash; rospack profile

You only need to do this once. Once you have done it, you should be able to import the module.
