HELMERT TRANSFORMATION ON THE CASE OF GAUSS-KRÜGER AND UTM
AbstractGlobally, maps are our primary source of comprehensive information about the shape, size and arrangement of Earth features. Maps are the only way we can get a unique and comprehensive view of the world. Unfortunately, globally, all maps are somehow deformed, affecting our perception and understanding of the various geometrical properties of the world. Cartographic projection is a way of mapping points from an ellipsoid to a plane and as such is the basis for making a mathematical map basis. The two projections most used in our geospatial are the Gauss-Krüger projection and the UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) projection. The paper deals with Helmert's transformation of these two projections.
