Title 44, Chapter 4, Section 24
( 44-4-24)
(a) For purposes of more precisely defining the Georgia Coordinate
System, the following definition of the United States Coast and
Geodetic Survey, now National Ocean Survey/National Geodetic Survey,
is adopted: (1) The "Georgia Coordinate System East Zone" is a transverse
Mercator projection of the Clarke spheroid of 1866, having a
central meridian eighty-two degrees ten minutes west of Greenwich,
on which meridian the scale is set one part in 10,000 too small.
The origin of coordinates is at the intersection of the meridian
eighty-two degrees ten minutes west of Greenwich and the parallel
thirty degrees north latitude. This origin is given the
coordinates: x = 500,000 feet and y = 0 feet; and (2) The "Georgia Coordinate System West Zone" is a transverse
Mercator projection of the Clarke spheroid of 1866, having a
central meridian eighty-four degrees ten minutes west of
Greenwich, on which meridian the scale is set one part in 10,000
too small. The origin of coordinates is at the intersection of
the meridian eighty-four degrees ten minutes west of Greenwich and
the parallel thirty degrees north latitude. This origin is given
the coordinates: x = 500,000 feet and y = 0 feet. (b) For purposes of more precisely defining the Georgia Coordinate
System of 1985, the following definition by the National Ocean
Survey/National Geodetic Survey is adopted: (1) The "Georgia Coordinate System of 1985 East Zone" is a
transverse Mercator projection of the North American Datum of
1983, having a central meridian eighty-two degrees ten minutes
west of Greenwich, on which central meridian the scale is set one
part in 10,000 too small. The origin of coordinates is at the
intersection of the central meridian eighty-two degrees ten
minutes west of Greenwich and the parallel thirty degrees north
latitude. This origin is given the coordinates: x = 200,000
meters and y = 0.000 meters; and (2) The "Georgia Coordinate System of 1985 West Zone" is a
transverse Mercator projection of the North American Datum of
1983, having a central meridian eighty-four degrees ten minutes
west of Greenwich, on which central meridian the scale is set one
part in 10,000 too small. The origin of coordinates is at the
intersection of the central meridian eighty-four degrees ten
minutes west of Greenwich and the parallel thirty degrees north
latitude. This origin is given the coordinates: x = 700,000
meters and y = 0.000 meters. |
