Pulkovo 1942(58)

Selected transformation

Method: Geocentric translations (geog2D domain)

Remarks: Derived by Deminex for nearshore Rodoni block in 1991-1992. Used by Shell for onshore seismic in 1995.

Information source: Shell Global Solutions International.

Revision date: 2020-03-14

Attributes

Unit: degree (supplier to define representation)

Geodetic CRS: Pulkovo 1942(58)

Datum: Pulkovo 1942(58)

Ellipsoid: Krassowsky 1940

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: EPSG

Information source: EuroGeographics; http://crs.bkg.bund.de/crs-eu/ and other industry sources.

Revision date: 2008-09-24

Scope: Geodesy.

Remarks: Shares same origin definition as Pulkovo 1942 (CRS code 4284) and for low accuracy purposes these systems can be considered consistent with each other. Locally densified during 1957 and 1958. Replaced by 1983 adjustment (CRS code 4178).

Area of use: Onshore: Bulgaria, Czechia, Germany (former DDR), Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. Onshore and offshore: Albania and Romania.

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

Center coordinates
19.89 41.99

WGS84 bounds:
19.14 41.3
20.63 42.67

Albania - north of 41°18'N and east of 19°09'E, onshore and offshore.
