         <epsg:example>(For the geocentric step only). Given a three parameter datum shift from WGS 84 to ED50 for this North Sea area is given as 
dX = +84.87m, dY = +96.49m, dZ = +116.95m. 

The WGS84 geographical coordinates convert to the following WGS 84 geocentric values using 
the above formulas for X, Y, Z:

   XA = 3771 793.97m
   YA =   140 253.34m
   ZA = 5124 304.35m

Applying the given datum shifts to these, we obtain new geocentric values now related 
to ED50:

   XB = 3771 878.84m
   YB =   140 349.83m
   ZB = 5124 421.30m</epsg:example>

Transformation of coordinates from one geographic coordinate reference system into another is often carried out as a concatenation of the following operations:

  (geographical to geocentric) + (geocentric to geocentric) + (geocentric to geographic)

The Coordinate Frame Rotation (geog2D domain) transformation has 5 steps:

(i) geographic 2D coordinates are converted to 3D using EPSG coordinate operation method code 9659;

(ii) geographic 3D coordinates are converted to geocentric coordinates using EPSG coordinate operation method code 9602;

(iii) the middle step of the concatenated transformation, from geocentric coordinates to geocentric coordinates, uses the Geocentric translations(geocentric domain) method, EPSG method code 1031;

(iv) the geocentric coordinates are converted to geographic 3D using EPSG coordinate operation method code 9602;
 
(v) finally the geographic 3D coordinates are converted to geographic 2D using EPSG coordinate operation method code 9659.</gml:formula>
