NAD27 / Alaska Albers

Available transformations

Selected transformation

Method: NADCON

Remarks: Transformation taken from NAD27 to NAD83 (2) (code 1243) assuming that NAD83 is equivalent to WGS 84 within the accuracy of this tfm. Uses NADCON method which expects longitudes positive west; EPSG CRS codes 4267 and 4326 have longitudes positive east.
