Geodetic datum

Papua New Guinea Geodetic Datum 1994

Attributes

Ellipsoid: GRS 1980

Prime meridian: Greenwich

Degree from Greenwich: 0

Data source: OGP

Information source: Quickclose Geomatics and http://www.aspng.org/techinfopng94.htm

Revision date: 2011-07-15

Scope: Topographic mapping, geodetic, engineering and cadastral survey.

Remarks: Adopted 1996. Coincident with WGS 84 in 1994 but rapidly divergent due to significant tectonic motion in PNG.

Area of use: Papua New Guinea - onshore and offshore. Includes Bismark archipelago, Louisade archipelago, Admiralty Islands, d'Entrecasteaux Islands, northern Solomon Islands, Trobriand Islands, New Britain, New Ireland, Woodlark, and associated islands.
