SK-42 reference system


The SK-42 reference system also known as the Krasovsky 1940 ellipsoid, is a coordinate system established in the Soviet Union in 1942 as Systema koordinat (Russian: Система координат 1942 года), and provides parameters which are linked to the geocentric Cartesian coordinate system PZ-90.[1] It was used in geodetic calculations, notably in military mapping and determining state borders. The coordinate system SK-42 served as a foundation for developing the SK-63 reference system which was created and used primarily for civilian and industrial development purposes.[1]

The Krasovsky 1940 ellipsoid uses a semi-major axis (equatorial radius) a of 6,378,245 m, and an inverse flattening 1/f of 298.3 [1][2]:220
