Since a grid is 1 degree of latitude by 2 degrees of longitude that is going
to cover a lot of counties in a single grid.  Even going to the 5th and 6th
place there can be several counties involved.

For example, my grid is EM12px.  However, that grid identification involves
both Dallas County, Texas, and Collin County, Texas.  Just a little west of
me in EM12 there are 3 counties involved, Dallas, Denton, and Collin
Counties.  Going a little farther west the counties would be Dallas, Denton,
and Tarrant.

time determining their county based on grid.  Is there an online convert
tool to go from grid to county?
