EPSG:3776

NAD83 / Alberta 3TM ref merid 114 W

Selected transformation

Method: NTv2

Grid Files: AB_CSRS.DAC

Remarks: This gridded difference file AB_CSRS.DAC will need to be renamed to AB_CSRS.gsb to run in some software suites. Formats identical, but AB file is provincial fit only. Can be taken as an approximate transformation NAD83 to WGS 84 - see code 1702.

Scope: Cadastre, survey control and engineering survey in urban areas, typically in all municipalities that previously comprised the 73 Municipal Integrated Surveying and Mapping (MISAM) areas, also known as urban cadastral map areas. For rural areas use UTM.

Remarks: If used for rural area control markers, area of use is amended to between 116°W and 112°W; however use of NAD83 / UTM zones 11N and 12N (CRS codes 26911 and 26912) is encouraged in these rural areas.

Area of use: Canada - Alberta - between 115°30'W and 112°30'W.

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