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 118°W and 116°W; however use of NAD83(CSRS) / UTM zone 11N (CRS code 2955) is encouraged in these rural areas.

Method: Geocentric translations (geog2D domain)

Area of use: Canada - Alberta - between 118°30'W and 115°30' W.

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