An easier place to search for coordinate systems...

If you need a quick and easy to use resource for coordinate systems search try: EPSG.io. This is an open source web-service providing a database based on the official EPSG database that is maintained by OGP Geomatics Committee.

 

You can quickly search for an area, name and type like any other web-search engines.

 

For Example searching "United Kingdom" and click on the British National Grid result produces the following page:

See below for a British National Grid example:

OSGB 1936 / British National Grid - United Kingdom Ordnance Survey - EPSG:27700

 

Some of the Key Features:

  • Easy full text search for the complete database of coordinate systems from EPSG
  • Short URLs that reference the EPSG code e.g. http://epsg.io/27700
  • Area of use for any CRS referenced on an embedded map
  • Export definitions in various formats
