Attributes

Ellipsoid: Clarke 1866

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: OGP

Information source: Clifford Mugnier's PE&RS July 1999 Grids and Datums article on The Republic of Panama, (www.asprs.org/resources/grids/).

Revision date: 2011-03-26

Scope: Topographic mapping and engineering survey.

Remarks: Reports of the existence of an Ancon datum are probably erroneous, considering that the origin of the Panamá-Colón Datum of 1911 is at Balboa Hill and the access road up the hill is from the town of Ancon, Canal Zone.
