  6. How does the data set represent geographic features?

    1. How are geographic features stored in the data set?

      This is a Vector data set. It contains the following vector data types (SDTS terminology):
      • G-polygon (155)

    2. What coordinate system is used to represent geographic features?

      The map projection used is Albers Conical Equal Area.

      Projection parameters:
      Standard parallel: 52.000000
      Standard parallel: 64.000000
      Longitude of central meridian: 135.000000
      Latitude of projection origin: 0.000000
      False easting: 23500000.000000
      False northing: 0.000000

      Planar coordinates are encoded using coordinate pair.
      Abscissae (x-coordinates) are specified to the nearest 0.000000.
      Ordinates (y-coordinates) are specified to the nearest 0.000000.
      Planar coordinates are specified in meters.

      The horizontal datum used is D_Pulkovo_1942.
      The ellipsoid used is Krasovsky_1940.
      The semi-major axis of the ellipsoid used is 6378245.000000.
      The flattening of the ellipsoid used is 1/298.300000.
