Scope: Satellite navigation.

Remarks: EPSG::6326 has been the then current realization. No distinction is made between the original and subsequent (G730, G873, G1150, G1674, G1762 and G2139) WGS 84 frames. Since 1997, WGS 84 has been maintained within 10cm of the then current ITRF.

Area of use: World.
