EPSG:4055 DEPRECATED

Popular Visualisation CRS

Available transformations
to EPSG:4326
No other targets exist for this CRS

Selected transformation

Method: Geocentric translations (geog2D domain)

Remarks: Executes change of sphere/ellipsoid

Information source: OGP

Revision date: 2008-03-14

Attributes

Unit: degree (supplier to define representation)

Geodetic CRS: Popular Visualisation CRS

Datum: Popular Visualisation Datum

Ellipsoid: Popular Visualisation Sphere

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: EPSG

Information source: Microsoft.

Revision date: 2008-03-13

Scope: Web mapping and visualisation.

Remarks: Some applications erroneously call this WGS 84. It uses a sphere with a radius having the same value as the semi-major axis of the WGS 84 ellipsoid. There is no geodetic recognition of this system.

Area of use: World.

Coordinate system: Ellipsoidal 2D CS. Axes: latitude, longitude. Orientations: north, east. UoM: degree

Center coordinates
0.0 0.0

WGS84 bounds:
-180.0 -90.0
180.0 90.0
