What is the difference between a geographic coordinate system and a projected coordinate system?

  • This looks like two questions so to fit the Q&A format of GIS-SE would you be able to focus this Question on the one you would like answered first, please? – PolyGeo Nov 12 '13 at 11:29
  • @PolyGeo kindly give me the answer to the first question I have posted. – Arun Nov 12 '13 at 11:35
  • This looks like you are trying to re-use a closed Question for a new one. I recommend that this one is rolled back and remains closed (as a duplicate) and that a second Question be asked with considerably more detail about what exactly is being asked. – PolyGeo Nov 13 '13 at 4:33
  • As someone who wants to know the answer to this question, the other question talks about different concepts which just confuses me. As such, although I understand what this question is asking I do not understand what the other question is asking. I believe this question should be 'unduplicated' – Chris Snow May 27 '15 at 8:33
  • @ChrisSnow This was a messy Q&A because it started with two questions (see Tour for desirability of one question per question), then the first was answered and accepted by the asker, then the asker changed the question to be the other one. If this Q&A does not answer what you need to know, which I think is the answer to the original second question, then I recommend researching/asking it as a new question. – PolyGeo May 27 '15 at 9:41
