EPSG:31462 DEPRECATED

DHDN / 3-degree Gauss zone 2

Selected transformation

Method: Position Vector transformation (geog2D domain)

Remarks: Parameter values from DHDN to ETRS89 (2) (code 1776) assuming that ETRS89 is equivalent to WGS 84 within the accuracy of the transformation. Replaces DHDN to WGS 84 (1) (tfm code 1673).
