EPSG:26823 DEPRECATED

NAD83 / West Virginia North (ftUS)

Available transformations
to EPSG:4326

Selected transformation

Method: NADCON

Grid Files: wvhpgn.las wvhpgn.los

Remarks: Parameter files are from NAD83 to NAD83(HARN) (37) (code 1526) assuming that NAD83(HARN) is equivalent to WGS 84 within the accuracy of the transformation.
