EPSG:3347

NAD83 / Statistics Canada Lambert

Selected transformation

Method: NTv2

Grid Files: NLCSRSV4A.GSB

Remarks: File NLCSRSV4A.GSB corrects error in file header record previously released as NLCSRSV4.GSB. No change to gridded data.

Information source: Canadian Geodetic Survey, Natural Resources Canada (NrCan).

Revision date: 2021-10-18

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.

Area of use: Canada - onshore and offshore - Alberta; British Columbia; Manitoba; New Brunswick; Newfoundland and Labrador; Northwest Territories; Nova Scotia; Nunavut; Ontario; Prince Edward Island; Quebec; Saskatchewan; Yukon.

Coordinate system: Cartesian 2D CS. Axes: easting, northing (E,N). Orientations: east, north. UoM: m.
