EPSG:4088 DEPRECATED

World Equidistant Cylindrical (Sphere)

Attributes

Unit: metre

Geodetic CRS: Unspecified datum based upon the GRS 1980 Authalic Sphere

Datum: Not specified (based on GRS 1980 Authalic Sphere)

Ellipsoid: GRS 1980 Authalic Sphere

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: EPSG

Information source: OGP

Revision date: 2009-06-06

Scope: Web mapping and visualisation.

Remarks: Uses spherical development. It is not a recognised geodetic system. Relative to an ellipsoidal development (see WGS 84 / World Equidistant Cylindrical (CRS code 4087)) errors of up to 800 metres in position and 0.7% in scale may arise.

Area of use: World.

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