EPSG:3778 DEPRECATED

NAD83 / Alberta 3TM ref merid 120 W

Available transformations
to EPSG:4326

Selected transformation

Method: NADCON

Grid Files: wmhpgn.las wmhpgn.los

Remarks: Parameter files are from NAD83 to NAD83(HARN) (9) (code 1482) assuming that NAD83(HARN) is equivalent to WGS 84 within the accuracy of the transformation.

Revision date: 2021-09-10

Attributes

Unit: metre

Geodetic CRS: NAD83

Datum: North American Datum 1983

Ellipsoid: GRS 1980

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: EPSG

Information source: Alberta SRD Lands Branch, Geodetic Fact Sheets 2, 6 and 10. http://www.srd.gov.ab.ca/lands

Revision date: 2008-01-11

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 west of 118°W; however use of NAD83 / UTM zone 11N (CRS code 26911) encouraged in these rural areas.

Area of use: Canada - Alberta - west of 118°30' W.

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