TM Projection
Formula

UTM Universal Transverse


UTM:
Mercator Projection used to define
horizontal positions by dividing the
earth into 6 degree zones .
Each Zone is a strip of 6
degrees Longitudinal from :
Latitude 80 degrees South to 84
degrees North . Each zone mapped
by Transverse Mercator Projection
with the central meridian in the zone
center.

NEED
TRANSFORMATION
TO NEW GRID
ETM

Within UAE no need transformation for new


data if one grid is adopted .
Exchange with outside UAE could be done using
Geographic 84 coordinates .
Old data: actual transformation not enough
accurate for the whole area : need new sets of
transformation parameters .
Area could be divided on several transformation
zones, specially in WRM area ,for given old data
in Nahrawan system.
