EPSG:28356

GDA94 / MGA zone 56

Available transformations
to EPSG:4326

Selected transformation

Method: Geocentric translations (geog2D domain)

Remarks: Approximation at the 3m level assuming WGS 84 is equivalent to GDA94. Ignores the low accuracy of the WGS 84 ensemble and the inconsistent application of tectonic plate motion to WGS 84 data.
