Abstract:

Article Preview

The national coordinates system used in Nigeria is the Universal Transverse Mercator projection, while China adopts the Gauss Krugger Transverse Mercator projection (GKTM). This paper studied the difference between UTM and Gauss(TM) projections and the regulation of projection deformation, and put forward the model of the coordinates system for the Nigeria railway, which shall be of great benefit in the survey, design, construction and referencing of the Nigeria railway project.
