EPSG:3070

NAD83 / Wisconsin Transverse Mercator

Available transformations
to EPSG:4326

Selected transformation

Method: NADCON

Grid Files: wihpgn.las wihpgn.los

Remarks: Parameter files are from NAD83 to NAD83(HARN) (29) (code 1502) assuming that NAD83(HARN) is equivalent to WGS 84 within the accuracy of the transformation.
