Assigning Map Projections in QGIS
In the latest GeoJSON specification , the coordinate reference system for all coordinates is a geographic coordinate reference system—using the World Geodetic System WGS 84 datum—with longitude and latitude units of decimal degrees. The previous specification allowed for the use of alternative coordinates systems, but this was removed because of interoperability issues. Occasionally, this may cause a problem of improperly formatted files that contain projected coordinates but have no specified coordinate system. In this case, users will need to either choose a coordinate system during import or modify the GeoJSON file by adding a coordinate reference system CRS object manually. Select the correct projected coordinate system from the list.
Combining science , aesthetics , and technique, cartography builds on the premise that reality or an imagined reality can be modeled in ways that communicate spatial information effectively. Modern cartography constitutes many theoretical and practical foundations of geographic information systems and geographic information science. What is the earliest known map is a matter of some debate, both because the term "map" is not well-defined and because some artifacts that might be maps might actually be something else. As early as the 8th century, Arab scholars were translating the works of the Greek geographers into Arabic. In ancient China , geographical literature dates to the 5th century BCE. Early forms of cartography of India included depictions of the pole star and surrounding constellations.
Choosing a Map Projection
The transverse Mercator map projection is an adaptation of the standard Mercator projection. The transverse version is widely used in national and international mapping systems around the world, including the Universal Transverse Mercator. When paired with a suitable geodetic datum , the transverse Mercator delivers high accuracy in zones less than a few degrees in east-west extent. The transverse Mercator projection is the transverse aspect of the standard or Normal Mercator projection. They share the same underlying mathematical construction and consequently the transverse Mercator inherits many traits from the normal Mercator:. Since the central meridian of the transverse Mercator can be chosen at will, it may be used to construct highly accurate maps of narrow width anywhere on the globe. The secant, ellipsoidal form of the transverse Mercator is the most widely applied of all projections for accurate large-scale maps.
Have you wondered how projections are assigned to particular data in GIS software? In this article, we will take our first step in exploring how map projections work in QGIS. It is important that GIS software users assign a projection to the data before carrying out any analysis so that the locations in the data match the location in the real world. All coordinate systems used in GIS are classified into two types:. A geographic coordinate system is a reference system that uses a three-dimensional spherical surface to determine locations on the earth. Any location on earth can be referenced by a point with longitude and latitude coordinates. The three dimensional surface is usually an ellipsoid.
A cached service layer or scene layer package in your map or scene is in a different projection than the map or scene being shared. The best solution depends on what you are sharing and if the service layer is your basemap. Web maps require a basemap to be in the same coordinate system as the map being shared. All cached service layers in the map must use the same tiling scheme as the basemap. Web scenes do not require a basemap.

An overview of the Projections and Transformations toolset
This book offers a much-needed critical approach to the intelligent use of the wide variety of map projections that are rapidly and inexpensively available today. It also discusses the distortions that are immanent in any map projection. A well-chosen map projection is one in which extreme distortions are smaller than those in any other projection used to map the same area and in which the map properties match its purpose.
Quick Notes on map projections
This toolset contains tools to convert geographic data from one map projection to another. There are additional tools for transforming raster datasets, such as shift, rescale, and rotate. When you obtain GIS data, it often needs to be transformed or projected.
ArcGIS Blog. Coordinate systems are fundamental knowledge for a GIS specialist. Hopefully these explanations will help clear things up for you too. A geographic coordinate system GCS is a reference framework that defines the locations of features on a model of the earth.
Мне нужны только деньги на такси. - Он прикинул в уме, сколько в этой пачке в пересчете на доллары. - Да тут несколько тысяч долларов. - Я действую по инструкции, сэр. - Пилот повернулся и скрылся в кабине. Дверца за ним захлопнулась.

As a result of this intent, The need for a working manual of this type has led to an uneroectedly Coordinate system for the Hotine Oblique Mercator projection ("same") and graphos ("write")); authalic (from the Greek autos ("s-:~.me").
Ключ к Цифровой крепости, внезапно осенило ее, прячется где-то в глубинах этого компьютера. Когда Сьюзан закрывала последний файл, за стеклом Третьего узла мелькнула тень. Она быстро подняла глаза и увидела возвращающегося Грега Хейла. Он приближался к двери.
- Взгляни-ка на. Прочитав написанное, Сьюзан поняла ход мысли коммандера. На бумажке был электронный адрес Северной Дакоты. NDAKOTAARA.
Джабба ее не слушал, остервенело нажимая на кнопки. - Осторожно! - сказала Соши. - Нам нужны точные цифры. - Звездочка, - повторила Сьюзан, - это сноска.
Ты пробрался в мой кабинет. - Нет.
