Transformation
The process that converts coordinates from one coordinate system to another through translation, rotation, and scaling.

Affine
affine - [Euclidean geometry] A geometric that scales, rotates, skews, and/or translates images or coordinates between any two Euclidean spaces.

A common transformation in North American data is between NAD83 and WGS84, or between the GCS North American 1927 and GCS WGS 1984 geographic coordinate systems as shown below.

Geometric s
This function is concerned with the registering of a data layer to a common coordinate scheme. This usually involves registering selected data layers to a standard data layer already registered.

Elastic body
A least-squares computer software program run against a raw digitized data source map to produce a geographically true "X" and "Y" coordinate database referenced to any standard map system.

This land use/land transformation modeling workshop will focus on three main themes: (1) the use of landscape ecology approaches for land transformation/land use change modeling, and, in particular, ...

s and Associative Procedures
In addition to nouns, our analysis requires associations. We need to model what we mean by properties NEAR subway stops. For this we will use many of the basic procedures of vector GIS: ...

B-56. The next step is derivation of transformation parameters between minimally constrained adjusted vectors and selected points in local geodetic system.

Format s
Format is the pattern into which data are systematically arranged for use on a computer. Format s are used to get data into acceptable GIS format.

6) Initialize exposure station parameters
7) Compute photo-to-target transformation parameters ...

The phase of a Spatial ETL process allows a variety of functions; some of these are similar to standard ETL, but some are unique to spatial data.

The transformation from the latitude and longitude co-ordinates into the geocentric co-ordinates is rather straightforward and turns ellipsoidal latitude (j), longitude (l) and height (h) into X,Y and Z, ...

Affine transformation - A combination of linear transformations (rotation and scaling) followed by translation (shift of position). In geographic data processing, affine transformation is used to register maps of different scales and origins.

Coordinate s defined by mapping relations
Usually those relations are not functions (e.g., the same point on the sphere may be represented by several points on the map).

However the transformation is easy to automatize if the data in their metadata header contain transformation parameters to a generally accepted local reference corresponding the site the data describe.

3) Apply the matrix to each pixel on the image to map the old location to the new location. In the case of DEMs, each point has three dimensions while L1A data has two dimensions and involves only planar s.

map-to-page transformation The process of positioning and scaling a map on a graphic page. It controls how coverage coordinates are transformed into graphics on the display screen or plotter page.

The geometric s that arise during map reprojection efforts can cause problems for raster graphics and represent a third disadvantage to using the raster data model.

Area (containment): arcs containing a polygon with given area The process of converting data from one coordinate system to another through translation, rotation, and scaling.

No map projection transformation can maintain scale everywhere. Angles, areas, distances and directions will be altered in the planar representation of the ellipsoidal earth.

coordinate transformation Source: GETIS glossary A mathematical operation on coordinates that includes a change of datum.

This can be distinguished from the s done within GIS analysis software by the fact that these changes are permanent, more complex and time consuming.

This is an error measurement that most GIS report during geometric transformation of data sets. It is mathematically the spatial equivalent to the standard deviation.

Not formed by a projecting light source, Mercator's projection is a completely mathematical of the earth onto a rectangular map. It was presented in 1569 by Gerhard Kremer, known as Mercator, the Latinized version of his name.

Conversions from various formats and from raster to vector and vector to raster are examples of format transformation.

A number of mathematical s can be employed to best depict the three-dimensional surface of the Earth on a flat map. However, these s do create some type of distortion artifact.

This is because in order to do operations that require raster transformations or other rater warping / clipping etc, PostGIS uses GDAL epsg files.

Geospatial data are encoded with certain units (feet, meters, degrees, etc.), the spatial components of each feature (lines, points) are projected using a mathematically defined .
