EPSG:3411 DEPRECATED

NSIDC Sea Ice Polar Stereographic North

Attributes

Unit: metre

Geodetic CRS: Unspecified datum based upon the Hughes 1980 ellipsoid

Datum: Not specified (based on Hughes 1980 ellipsoid)

Ellipsoid: Hughes 1980

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: EPSG

Information source: US National Snow and Ice Data Center.

Revision date: 2009-06-02

Scope: Polar research.

Remarks: The datum is unspecified. Uncertainty in location of over 1 km may result; at the coarse resolution and very small scales for which this system should be used this uncertainty may be insignificant. See CRS 3413 for geodetically preferred alternative.

Area of use: Northern hemisphere - north of 60°N onshore and offshore, including Arctic.

Coordinate system: Cartesian 2D CS for north polar azimuthal lonO 45°W. Axes: X,Y. Orientations: X along 45°E, Y along 135°E meridians. UoM: m.

Center coordinates
1350608.65 -1350608.65

Projected bounds:
-3314763.31 -3314763.31
3314763.31 3314763.31

WGS84 bounds:
-180.0 60.0
180.0 90.0

Northern hemisphere - north of 60°N onshore and offshore, including Arctic.
