These numbers represent the location of some place in Israel.

183409 264679

But I can't find them in Google Maps; they don't seem to convert to coordinates.

Does anyone have an idea? Maybe I should convert these numbers to some other format?

    Where did you get those numbers from? Do you have an idea roughly which part of the world we're talking about? – hmakholm left over Monica May 24 '18 at 12:55

    I'll ask again: Where did you get those numbers from? The context you found them in could contain a lot of clues about which coordinate systems they might be expressed in. – hmakholm left over Monica May 24 '18 at 13:44

    You are right. I got it from my friend but he got no clue where it come from. – raxinaga May 24 '18 at 13:47

    At Geographic Information Systems they may have more knowledge of map coordinate systems, but I'm not sure they would welcome a question of this kind. – hmakholm left over Monica May 24 '18 at 13:47

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it has nothing to do with travel. – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo May 24 '18 at 13:48

By plugging your latitude/longitude coordiantes into https://zvikabenhaim.appspot.com/software/ITM/, we see that they correspond pretty closely to your mystery coordinates in the Israel Cassini Soldner system, also known as the "old Israel grid" (רשת ישראל ישנה).
