NAD83(CSRS) / Yukon Albers

Available transformations

Selected transformation

Method: Geocentric translations (geog2D domain)

Remarks: For many purposes NAD83(CSRS) can be considered to be coincident with WGS 84.

Information source: OGP

Revision date: 2007-05-29

Attributes

Unit: metre

Geodetic CRS: NAD83(CSRS)

Datum: NAD83 Canadian Spatial Reference System

Ellipsoid: GRS 1980

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: OGP

Revision date: 2007-05-29

Scope: Spatial data storage and use for whole province in grid coordinates.

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.

Method: Geocentric translations (geog2D domain)

Area of use: Canada - Yukon.

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