EPSG:3579

NAD83(CSRS) / Yukon Albers

Available transformations
to EPSG:4326
No other targets exist for this CRS

Selected transformation

Method: Coordinate Frame rotation (geog2D domain)

Remarks: Approximation derived from tfm code 6864 ignoring time-dependent parameters and assuming ITRF96(1997.0) and WGS 84 can be considered the same within the accuracy of the transformation.

Scope: Territory-wide spatial data management.

Remarks: This CRS may sometimes be called "NAD83 / Yukon Albers". That is the name of a different system (see CRS code 3578) but at the scales involved the positional difference of under 2 metres may not be significant.
