EPSG:4230

ED50

Available transformations

Selected transformation

Method: Reversible polynomial of degree 13

Remarks: Adopted at June 2003 agreement between LBA and BSH. From TR8350.2 MRE for onshore western Europe. May be approximated to better than 0.5m by transformation code 1998. LBA will also accept TR8350.2 mean Europe geocentric translation (code 1133).
