Definition

Information about the coordinate system developed on a planar surface. Include enough information to allow the user of a geospatial data set to identify the quantities of distances, or distances and angles. These define the position of a point on a reference plane onto which the surface of the Earth has been projected. Use with the Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata available at the Federal Geographic Data Committee web site (http://www.fgdc.gov/standards/standards_publications/).

Punctuation. Enter a period at the end of field 343 unless another mark of punctuation is present. Use a semicolon ( ; ) to separate each subfield.
