EPSG:3397

PD/83 / 3-degree Gauss-Kruger zone 4

Available transformations
to EPSG:4326
EPSG:4326 - WGS 84

Selected transformation

Method: NTv2

Grid Files: BETA2007.gsb

Remarks: Parameter values taken from DHDN to ETRS89 (8) (code 15948) as PD/83 and ETRS89 may be considered equivalent to DHDN and WGS 84 respectively within the accuracy of the transformation.

Information source: OGP

Revision date: 2021-09-23

Attributes

Unit: metre

Geodetic CRS: PD/83

Datum: Potsdam Datum/83

Ellipsoid: Bessel 1841

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: EPSG

Information source: BKG via EuroGeographics. http://crs.bkg.bunde.de

Revision date: 2012-01-21

Scope: Cadastre, topographic mapping.

Remarks: Consistent with DHDN (CRS code 4314) at the 1-metre level. For low accuracy applications PD/83 can be considered the same as DHDN. See CRS code 5667 for variant with axes order reversed to easting before northing for use in GIS applications.

Area of use: Germany - Thuringen - east of 10°30'E.

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