EPSG:4267

NAD27

Selected transformation

Method: NTv2

Grid Files: QUE27-98.gsb

Remarks: Uses NT method which expects longitudes positive west; EPSG GeogCRSs NAD27 (code 4267) and NAD83(CSRS98) (code 4140) have longitudes positive east. Can be taken as an approximate transformation NAD27 to WGS 84 - see code 1692.
