Amersfoort

Available transformations
to EPSG:4326

Selected transformation

Remarks: Parameter values for step 1 from Amersfoort to ETRS89 (2) (code 1751). Step 2 assumes that ETRS89 is equivalent to WGS 84 within the accuracy of the transformation. Supersedes Amersfoort to WGS 84 (1) (code 1112).

Attributes

Unit: degree (supplier to define representation)

Geodetic CRS: Amersfoort

Datum: Amersfoort

Ellipsoid: Bessel 1841

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: EPSG

Information source: NSGI: Netherlands Partnership of Kadaster, Rijkswaterstaat and Hydrographic Service, http://www.nsgi.nl/.

Revision date: 2020-08-31

Scope: Intermediate CRS in transformation to and from projected CRS.

Remarks: Use of geographic2D CRS Amersfoort (code 4289) for spatial referencing is discouraged. Use projected CRS Amersfoort / RD New (code 28992).

Area of use: Netherlands - onshore, including Waddenzee, Dutch Wadden Islands and 12-mile offshore coastal zone.

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