EPSG:3782 DEPRECATED

NAD83(CSRS) / Alberta 3TM ref merid 120 W

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.

Information source: "Realization and Unification of NAD83 in Canada and the U.S. via the ITRF" by Cramer et al, IAG Proceedings, Section II, Munich, October 5-9, 1998; revised 11 March 1999.

Attributes

Unit: metre

Geodetic CRS: NAD83(CSRS)

Datum: NAD83 Canadian Spatial Reference System

Ellipsoid: GRS 1980

Prime meridian: Greenwich

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(CSRS) / UTM zone 11N (CRS code 2955) 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.
