Discrete global grid system is a new data model which supports the fusion processing of multi-source geospatial data. In discrete global grid systems, all cell operations can be completed by codes theoretically, but most of current spatial data are in the forms of geographic coordinates and projected coordinates. It is necessary to study the transform between geographic coordinates and grid codes, which will support data entering and getting out of the systems. This paper chooses the

Then an encoding scheme of planar aperture 4 hexagonal grid system is designed and applied to the icosahedron. Basing on this, a new algorithm of transforms between geographic coordinates and grid codes is designed. Finally, experiments test the accuracy and efficiency of this algorithm. The efficiency of code addition of HLQT is about 5 times the efficiency of code addition of HQBS.
