What datum is Google Maps in?
Besides, what coordinate system does Google Maps use?
Google uses WGS 84 Web Mercator as its coordinate system. In ESRI it is under geographic coordinate systems.
Furthermore, what elevation datum is Google Earth? 3 Answers. The heights on google earth refer to EGM96 and are, therefore, Geoidal heights. The lat/long are referred to the WGS 84 ellipsoid.
Then, is Google Earth in nad83 or nad27?
Geodetic Datums: NAD83 versus NAD27 One of the primary difference is that NAD83 uses an Earth-centered reference, rather than a fixed station in NAD27. All coordinates were referenced to Kansas Meade's Ranch (39°13'26.686″ north latitude, 98°32'30.506″ west longitude) for NAD27 datum.
How do you find a coordinate?
To find out the coordinates of a point in the coordinate system you do the opposite. Begin at the point and follow a vertical line either up or down to the x-axis. There is your x-coordinate. And then do the same but following a horizontal line to find the y-coordinate.
