EPSG:25838 DEPRECATED

ETRS89 / UTM zone 38N

Selected transformation

Method: Geocentric translations (geog2D domain)

Remarks: ETRS89 and WGS 84 are realizations of ITRS coincident to within 1 metre. This transformation has an accuracy equal to the coincidence figure.

Information source: OGP

Revision date: 2021-09-23

Attributes

Unit: metre

Geodetic CRS: ETRS89

Datum: European Terrestrial Reference System 1989 ensemble

Data source: EPSG

Revision date: 2000-10-19

Scope: Engineering survey, topographic mapping.

Remarks: The distinction in usage between ETRF89 and ETRS89 is confused: although in principle conceptually different in practice both are used as synonyms.

Area of use: Europe - between 42°E and 48°E.

Coordinate system: Cartesian 2D CS. Axes: easting, northing (E,N). Orientations: east, north. UoM: m.
