ED50

Available transformations
to EPSG:4326

Selected transformation

Method: NTv2

Grid Files: sped2et.gsb

Remarks: Parameter values from ED50 to ETRS89 (11) (code 15895). Assumes ETRS89 and WGS 84 can be considered the same to within the accuracy of the transformation. NOTE: Parameter file is non-conformant with NTv2 specification - replaced by ED50 to WGS 84 (41).
