Each LOCATION is defined by its coordinate system, map projection and geographical boundaries. 2 for more details). dbf Fig. 1. 1) that are used to subdivide the project into different topics, subregions, or as workspaces for individual team members. Besides access to his own MAPSET, each user can also read maps in other users’ MAPSETs, but he can modify or remove only the maps in his own MAPSET.

4 illustrates the coordinate system, the northing values are positive north from the equator, the easting values are measured from the central meridian. To avoid negative values, a false easting of 500,000m is defined in addition to the third of the longitude of the central meridian. For example, the false easting for the 9 ◦ E central meridian is 3,500,000m (9/3 = 3, value composed with 500,000m to 3,500,000m). North American and European Datums In general, a large number of georeferencing datums exists, here we focus on three examples.

The command reprojects the current MAPSET boundary values to latitude-longitude which helps you to verify that the projection definitions are correct. Note that the -b flag reprojects to the WGS84 ellipsoid. 3) georeferenced file you can use the European Petroleum Survey Group (EPSG) code, aimed at standardization of common projection definitions. Projections and coordinate systems including geodetic datum can either be manually defined or selected via EPSG code from predefined list entries. The EPSG codes menu window provides a browse and search option for EPSG codes.
