EPSG:9706

WGS 84 to WGS 84 + MSL height (1)

Attributes

Geodetic CRS: WGS 84

Datum: World Geodetic System 1984 ensemble

Data source: EPSG

Information source: IOGP

Revision date: 2021-02-05

Scope: Reversible geoid model transformation.

Remarks: Reversible alternative to WGS 84 to MSL height (1) (code 8037). Parameter values are from WGS 84 to WGS 84 + EGM2008 height (2) (CT code 9618) assuming that the EGM2008 surface equals MSL surface within the accuracy of the transformation.

Method: Geog3D to Geog2D+GravityRelatedHeight (EGM2008)

Area of use: World.
