New Official Map Projection of Croatia - HTRS96/TM

Miljenko Lapaine, Dražen Tutić


Activities on creation of proposal for new map projections in Croatia are described in the first part of this paper. New official reference coordinate system for map projection HTRS96/TM is presented, which will be used in Croatia for the needs of cadastre and topographic cartography for scales larger than 1:500 000. A program of implementing official geodetic datums and map projections is also mentioned and, in connection with that program, work on the project New Map Projection of the Republic of Croatia – HTRS96/TM – Instructions for Practical Use. Two basic tasks are described in details: conversion of geodetic coordinates φ and λ into rectangular coordinates E, N in projection plane and vice versa.
