Selected transformation

Poland - onshore.

code 1645

Accuracy 1.0 m (default)
7 parameters

Method: Position Vector transformation (geog2D domain)

Remarks: Parameter values from Pulkovo 1942(58) to ETRS89 (1) (code 1644). Assumes ETRS89 and WGS 84 can be considered the same to within the accuracy of the transformation.

Attributes

Unit: degree (supplier to define representation)

Geodetic CRS: Pulkovo 1942(58)

Datum: Pulkovo 1942(58)

Ellipsoid: Krassowsky 1940

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: OGP

Information source: EuroGeographics; http://crs.bkg.bund.de/crs-eu/ and other industry sources.

Revision date: 2008-09-24

Scope: Geodetic survey.

Remarks: Shares same origin definition as Pulkovo 1942 (CRS code 4284) and for low accuracy purposes these systems can be considered consistent with each other. Locally densified during 1957 and 1958. Replaced by 1983 adjustment (CRS code 4178).

Method: Position Vector transformation (geog2D domain)
