Coordinate Systems and EPSG Codes

The CoordSysService uses XML Coordinate Reference System (CRS) to specify the source and target coordinate systems for the start and end transformations. The full XML DTD definition of CRS can be found in the OpenGIS Specification 01-014. 

For European Petroleum Survey Group (EPSG) code ,for example Longitude/Latitude(WGS 84), we can present it as the following XML fragment:

<CoordinateReferenceSystem>
 <Identifier>
  <code>4326</code>
  <codeSpace>EPSG</codeSpace>
 </Identifier>
</CoordinateReferenceSystem>

The customized CRS may be more complex than a well-known one. The current GML is limited to use only well-known CRS. The CoordSys XML currently uses the following in the DTD:

srsName CDATA #IMPLIED (Note: sometimes #REQUIRED)

The srsName text must contain both the CRS name-space and the name separated by a colon. An example XML containing geometries in WGS 84 would look like the following:

srsName="EPSG:4326"
