@UML(identifier="ProjectedCRS", specification=ISO_19111) public interface ProjectedCRS extends DerivedCRS
A 2- or 3-dimensional CRS based on an approximation of the shape of the planet's surface by a plane. It is done in such a way that the distortion that is inherent to the approximation is carefully controlled and known. Distortion correction is commonly applied to calculated bearings and distances to produce values that are a close match to actual field values.

Permitted coordinate systems

This type of CRS can be used with coordinate systems of type CartesianCS only.
