EPSG:3978

NAD83 / Canada Atlas Lambert

Available transformations
to EPSG:4152

Selected transformation

Method: NADCON

Grid Files: emhpgn.las emhpgn.los

Remarks: Accuracy 67% confidence level. Uses NADCON method which expects longitudes positive west; EPSG GeogCRSs NAD83 (code 4269) and NAD83(HARN) (code 4152) have longitudes positive east. May be taken as approximate transformation NAD83-WGS 84 - see code 1715.

Attributes

Unit: metre

Geodetic CRS: NAD83

Datum: North American Datum 1983

Ellipsoid: GRS 1980

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: EPSG

Information source: Statistics Canada.

Revision date: 2009-04-26

Scope: Transformation of coordinates at 5m level of accuracy.

Remarks: Data may sometimes be referenced to NAD83(CSRS) / Canada Atlas Lambert (see CRS code 3979) which is then called "NAD83 / Canada Lambert". At the scales involved the difference of under 2 metres between the two CRSs may not be significant.

Area of use: Canada - onshore and offshore - Alberta; British Columbia; Manitoba; New Brunswick; Newfoundland and Labrador; Northwest Territories; Nova Scotia; Nunavut; Ontario; Prince Edward Island; Quebec; Saskatchewan; Yukon.

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