NAD83 / Statistics Canada Lambert

Available transformations
to EPSG:4326

Selected transformation

Method: NTv2

Grid Files: NA83SCRS.GSB

Remarks: Parameter file is from NAD83 to NAD83(CSRS)v2 (1) (code 9241) assuming that NAD83(CSRS)v2 is equivalent to WGS 84 within the accuracy of the transformation. Also distributed with file name NAD83-98.gsb.

Attributes

Unit: metre

Geodetic CRS: NAD83

Datum: North American Datum 1983

Ellipsoid: GRS 1980

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: EPSG

Information source: Statistics Canada.

Revision date: 2010-03-30

Scope: Topographic mapping (small scale).

Remarks: Data may sometimes be referenced to NAD83(CSRS) / STC Lambert (see CRS code 3348) which is then called "NAD83 / STC Lambert". At the scales involved the difference of under 2 metres between the two CRSs may not be significant.
