Technical note: TCPD’s sector layout maps are derived from Survey Department’s base maps, which are based on different projections (War Office, Clarke 1880), different datums and different units (feet, meter). This metadata information is not always given on the maps. Table below will help to identify the coordinate system.

X value (Easting)

Y value (Northing)

Coordinate system

From -2.4 to +1.3

From 4.7 to 11.2
