EPSG:7003

Ellipsoid

Australian National Spheroid

Attributes

Unit: metre

Data source: OGP

Information source: "Australian Map Grid Technical Manual"; National Mapping Council of Australia Special Publication #7; 1972

Revision date: 2008-08-11

Remarks: Based on the GRS 1967 figure but with 1/f taken to 2 decimal places exactly. The dimensions are also used as the GRS 1967 Modified ellipsoid (see code 7050).
