Questions tagged [wgs84]

WGS 84 (that spelling) is the name of an ellipsoid (EPSG::7030), the name of a geodetic coordinate reference system (EPSG::4326), and the alias of a datum (EPSG::6326), official name World Geodetic System 1984. WGS84 (no space) is the alias of the ellipsoid (EPSG::7030). WGS 84 is most commonly used to describe the coordinate reference system.
