EPSG:5338

OSGB36 to ETRS89 (1)

Attributes

Geodetic CRS: OSGB36

Datum: Ordnance Survey of Great Britain 1936

Ellipsoid: Airy 1830

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: EPSG

Information source: Ordnance Survey of Great Britain, http://www.gps.gov.uk

Revision date: 2021-05-13

Scope: Transformation of coordinates at 0.03m level of accuracy.
