EPSG:26715

NAD27 / UTM zone 15N

Available transformations
to EPSG:4326

Selected transformation

Method: NADCON

Grid Files: conus.las conus.los

Remarks: Parameter files are from NAD27 to NAD83 (1) (code 1241) assuming that NAD83 is equivalent to WGS 84 within the accuracy of this tfm. Uses NADCON method which expects longitudes positive west; EPSG CRS codes 4267 and 4326 have longitudes positive east.

Attributes

Unit: metre

Geodetic CRS: NAD27

Datum: North American Datum 1927

Ellipsoid: Clarke 1866

Data source: EPSG

Revision date: 2009-11-24

Scope: Engineering survey, topographic mapping.

Remarks: Replaced by NAD27(76) / UTM 15N (code 2027) in Ontario, by NAD83 / UTM 15N (code 26915) elsewhere in Canada & USA, & by Mexican Datum of 1993 / UTM 15N (code 4488) in Mexico. See NAD27 / BLM 15N (ftUS) (code 32065) for ftUS equivalent used in US GoM.

Area of use: North America - between 96°W and 90°W. Canada - Manitoba; Nunavut; Ontario. Guatemala. Mexico. United States (USA) - Arkansas; Illinois; Iowa; Kansas; Louisiana; Michigan; Minnesota; Mississippi; Missouri; Nebraska; Oklahoma; Tennessee; Texas; Wisconsin. Onshore for Canadian Arctic and Central America, onshore and offshore for Gulf of Mexico (both US and Mexican sectors).

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