EPSG:6201

Adindan

Attributes

Ellipsoid: Clarke 1880 (RGS)

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Data source: OGP

Information source: US Coast and Geodetic Survey via Geophysical Reasearch vol 67 #11, October 1962.

Revision date: 2015-04-22

Scope: Topographic mapping.

Remarks: The 12th parallel traverse of 1966-70 (Point 58 datum, code 6620) is connected to the Blue Nile 1958 network in western Sudan. This has given rise to misconceptions that the Blue Nile network is used in west Africa.

Area of use: Eritrea; Ethiopia; South Sudan; Sudan.
