I would like to store and use GIS-Data in Rhineland-Palatinate (Germany). The coordinate System should be UTM 32N with 32 as prefix (false easting = 32,500,000; not 500,000).

I looked at EPSG 4647 [ETRS89 / UTM zone 32N (zE-N)].
But I'm confused because EPSG says:

Scope: Used in Schleswig-Holstein.

Information Source: Landesvermessungsamt Schleswig-Holstein.

Which UTM 32N coordinate system (EPSG-code) should use in Rhineland-Palatinate?

EDIT:

I will convert a large database from Gauss-Krueger to UTM. The database (and the new coordinate system) will be used for many years. We will exchange data with other (UTM with and without prefix, Gauss-Kueger).

Since 4647 to refers to Schleswig-Holstein I am not sure whether 4647 is good for us. But there are no other EPSG codes with zone prefix.

    We use 4647 in Lower Saxony, too. As far as i know, 4647, 25832 and the other EPSG-UTM32-Codes only differ in representation, that is 4647 stores with preceeding zone number, whereas 25832 doesnt. So 25832 coordinate xxxxxx is 32xxxxxx in 4647. – til_b May 12 '14 at 9:27

    See also lgn.niedersachsen.de/download/71484/…. This is not restricted to Schleswig-Holstein – AndreJ May 12 '14 at 10:22

(Please note that some other EPSG codes for UTM32N, for example 5652, swich the N and E coordinates (thanks @Jens))

See http://www.epsg-registry.org/ for more details.

    I suggest that you delete the part and the other EPSG-UTM32-Codes. Because other EPSG-UTM32-Codes differ in the order of xy axis. Then I will accept your answer. – Jens May 14 '14 at 6:21
