4.1.24 linear coordinate system one-dimensional coordinate system (4.1 .8) in which a linear feature forms the axis EXAMPLES Distances along a pipeline; depths down a deviated oil well bore. [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 :2007, 4.32] 4.1.25 map projection coordinate conversion (4.1 .4) from an ellipsoidal coordinate system (4.1 .1 3) to a plane [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 :2007, 4.33] 4.1.26 parametric coordinate reference system coordinate reference system (4.1 .7) based on a parametric datum (4.1 .28) [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 -2:2009, 4.2] 4.1.27 parametric coordinate system one-dimensional coordinate system (4.1 .8) where the axis units are parameter values which are not inherently spatial [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 -2:2009, 4.1 ] 4.1.28 parametric datum datum (4.1 .1 1 ) describing the relationship of a parametric coordinate system (4.1 .27) to an object Note 1 to entry: The object is normally the Earth. [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 -2:2009, 4.3] 4.1.29 polar coordinate system two-dimensional coordinate system (4.1 .8) in which position is specified by distance and direction from the origin Note 1 to entry: For the three-dimensional case, see spherical coordinate system (4.1 .35). [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 :2007, 4.37] 4.1.30 prime meridian zero meridian meridian from which the longitudes of other meridians are quantified [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 :2007, 4.38] 4.1.31 projected coordinate reference system coordinate reference system (4.1 .7) derived from a two-dimensional geodetic coordinate reference system (4.1 .1 8) by applying a map projection (4.1 .25) [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 :2007, 4.39]
4.1.32 semi-major axis a semi-diameter of the longest axis of an ellipsoid (4.1 .1 2) Note 1 to entry: This equates to the semi-diameter of the ellipsoid measured in its equatorial plane. [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 :2007, 4.40] 4.1.33 semi-minor axis b semi-diameter of the shortest axis of an ellipsoid (4.1 .1 2) Note 1 to entry: The shortest axis coincides with the rotation axis of the ellipsoid and therefore contains both poles. [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 :2007, 4.41 ] 4.1.34 spatio-parametric coordinate reference system compound coordinate reference system (4.1 .4) in which one constituent coordinate reference system (4.1 .7) is a parametric coordinate reference system (4.1 .26) and one is a spatial coordinate reference system Note 1 to entry: Normally the spatial component is “horizontal” and the parametric component is “vertical”. [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 -2:2009, 4.4] 4.1.35 spherical coordinate system three-dimensional coordinate system (4.1 .8) with one distance measured from the origin and two angular coordinates, commonly associated with a geodetic coordinate reference system (4.1 .1 8) Note 1 to entry: Not to be confused with an ellipsoidal coordinate system (4.1 .1 3) based on an ellipsoid (4.1 .1 2) ‘degenerated’ into a sphere. [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 :2007, 4.44] 4.1.36 spheroid closed surface that differs only slightly from that of a sphere 4.1.37 vertical coordinate reference system one-dimensional coordinate reference system (4.1 .7) based on a vertical datum (4.1 .39) [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 :2007, 4.47] 4.1.38 vertical coordinate system one-dimensional coordinate system (4.1 .8) used for gravity-related height or depth measurements [SOURCE: ISO 1 91 1 1 :2007, 4.48]
