EPSG:31468

DHDN / 3-degree Gauss-Kruger zone 4

Selected transformation

Method: NTv2

Grid Files: SeTa2016.gsb

Remarks: Replaces SeTa2009 from 2018-01-15. Derived using the 2016 implementation of ETRS89 / DREF91 and DHHN2016. Coincident with the transformation of cadastral data from DHDN to ETRS89 used by LVGL at a level of 1-2 mm.
