Coordinate SystemsGeographic Coordinate Systems A measurement of a location on the Earths surfaceexpressed in degrees of latitude and longitude 10. Coordinate SystemsGeographic Coordinate Systems Three-dimensional spherical surface to define locations on the earth If two datasets are not referenced to the same geographic coordinate system, you may need to perform a geographic (datum) transformation It is very important to correctly use a geographic transformation if it is required. A GCS is often incorrectly called a datum, but a datum is only one part of a GCS. A GCS includes an angular unit of measure, a prime meridian, and a datum (based on a spheroid). The spheroid defines the size and shape of the earth model, while the datum connects the spheroid to the earths surface 11. Coordinate SystemsProjected Coordinate Systems A method by which the curved surface of the earth is portrayed on a flat surface 12. Coordinate SystemsProjected Coordinate Systems Two-dimensional surface locations are identified by x,y coordinates on a grid, with the origin at the center of the grid Unlike a GCS, a PCS has constant lengths, angles, and areas across the two dimensions A PCS is always based on a GCS that is based on a sphere or spheroid. 13.
