EPSG:3886

Fao 1979 height

Attributes

Unit: metre

Geodetic CRS: Fao 1979 height

Datum: Fao 1979

Data source: EPSG

Information source: Survey Department, Ministry of Water Resources (MoWR).

Revision date: 2010-03-01

Scope: Geodesy, engineering survey.

Remarks: Replaces Fao height (CRS code 5751) for national map agency work in Iraq. At time of record creation some irrigation project data still referenced to Fao. Usage in oil industry is uncertain.

Area of use: Iraq - onshore.

Coordinate system: Vertical CS. Axis: height (H). Orientation: up. UoM: m.
