WGS84 bounds:
179.9 -85.0
-179.9 85.0

Attributes

Ellipsoid: WGS 84

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Degree from Greenwich: 0

Data source: OGP

Information source: NIMA TR8350.2 June 2004 revision. http://earth-info.nga.mil/GandG/publications/tr8350.2/tr8350_2.html and http://gis-lab.info/docs/nima-tr8350.2-addendum.pdf. Also NGA.STND.0036_1.0.0_WGS84 of 2014-07-08.

Revision date: 2014-11-21

Scope: Satellite navigation.

Remarks: EPSG::6326 has been the then current realisation. No distinction is made between the original and subsequent (G730, G873, G1150, G1674 and G1762) WGS 84 frames. Since 1997, WGS 84 has been maintained within 10cm of the then current ITRF.

Area of use: World.
