EPSG:4055 DEPRECATED

Popular Visualisation CRS

Covered area powered by MapTiler MapTiler logo

Center coordinates
0.00000000 0.00000000

WGS84 bounds:
-180.0 -90.0
180.0 90.0

Available transformations:

  • (default) World., accuracy 800.0 m, code World. (deprecated) [3]

Selected transformation

World.

code 15973

Accuracy 800.0 m (default)
3 parameters

Method: Geocentric translations (geog2D domain)

Remarks: Executes change of sphere/ellipsoid

Information source: OGP

Revision date: 2008-03-14

Attributes

Unit: degree (supplier to define representation)

Geodetic CRS: Popular Visualisation CRS

Datum: Popular Visualisation Datum

Ellipsoid: Popular Visualisation Sphere

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: OGP

Information source: Microsoft.

Revision date: 2008-03-13

Scope: Certain Web mapping and visualisation applications.

Remarks: Some applications erroneously call this WGS 84. It uses a sphere with a radius having the same value as the semi-major axis of the WGS 84 ellipsoid. There is no geodetic recognition of this system.

Method: Geocentric translations (geog2D domain)

Area of use: World.

Coordinate system: Ellipsoidal 2D CS. Axes: latitude, longitude. Orientations: north, east. UoM: degree
