Definition

Information about the coordinate system developed on a planar surface. Include enough information to allow the user of a geospatial data set to identify the quantities of distances, or distances and angles. These define the position of a point on a reference plane onto which the surface of the Earth has been projected. Use with the Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata available at the Federal Geographic Data Committee web site.

For information on punctuation, see the Punctuation section below.

Punctuation. Enter a period at the end of field 343 unless another mark of punctuation is present. Use a semicolon to separate each subfield.

1st Indicator

Punctuation

For records containing punctuation, follow these instructions:

  • Precede subfields ǂa, ǂb, ǂc, ǂd, ǂe, ǂf, ǂg, ǂh, and ǂi with a semicolon-space
  • Include incidental punctuation needed within any subfields, e.g., commas, periods (following abbreviations or initials), etc.
  • Optionally, add a terminal period at the end of the field unless the last subfield ends with an ellipsis or period (following an abbreviation or initial)
343     Coordinate pair; ǂe 30.0; ǂf 0.0001; ǂg Degrees, minutes, and decimal seconds; ǂh North; ǂb U.S. feet.

For records containing minimal or no punctuation, include incidental punctuation needed within any subfields. Otherwise, omit the punctuation outlined above.
