@UML(identifier="CC_Conversion", specification=ISO_19111) public interface Conversion extends SingleOperation
An operation on coordinates that does not include any change of Datum. The best-known example of a coordinate conversion is a map projection. The parameters describing coordinate conversions are defined rather than empirically derived.
Example: conversion from an ellipsoidal coordinate reference system based on the WGS 84 datum to a Cartesian coordinate reference system also based on the WGS 84 datum, or change of units such as from radians to degrees or feet to meters.

Note that some conversions have no parameters.
