Abstract:

This document provides U.S. Army organizations and agencies with general guidance on selecting the appropriate methods for shifting between local geodetic datums and the World Geodetic System WGS, and for converting Cartesian and map projection coordinates to and from geodetic coordinates. This guidance is provided to aid the Army community in selecting datum shift algorithms developing, selecting, and maintaining software using these algorithms and implementing this software to support operational limits. Equations are furnished for map projections and datums commonly used within the Army. References are provided for other, less commonly encountered, map projections and datums.
