I have Coordinates (x=3381438.573, y=5794542.432) and a location (somewhere south of Berlin). Is there a way to find out the Projection code this data was defined with? A website would be nice.

    epsg.io is one possibility. The coordinates look a lot like DHDN Zone 3 - but then the points wouldn't be south of Berlin. – Erik Aug 16 at 13:05
  • Still, I dont know how to find a specific projection to my coordinates, besides manually trying every possible projection. – Ferenjito Aug 16 at 15:32

    It's easier to identify the projCRS or possible projCRS but much more difficult to narrow it down to a particular geoCRS if there are multiple ones for the area. Possible duplicate: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/261601/… – mkennedy Aug 16 at 18:14

A quick search with ProjFinder reveals that your coordinate reference system might be one of these :

  • EPSG:3835 Name:Pulkovo 1942(83) / Gauss-Kruger zone 3
  • EPSG:3333 Name:Pulkovo 1942(58) / Gauss-Kruger zone 3

Which correspond to a point located just south of Ludwigsfelde, near 52°15'58.7"N, 13°15'41.3"E:

Without more information, it is hard to tell which datum version it corresponds to, since both appear to differ by only a few meters.
