Development of Parameter Transformation of Indonesian Geospatial Reference System 2013


DGN95 is a static geospatial reference system, in which the change in the value of coordinates towards time as a result of tectonic plate movement and deformation of the earth’s crust, is not considered. Changes in the value of coordinates towards time need to be considered in defining a geospatial reference system for the territory of Indonesia. This is because the territory of Indonesia is located between several tectonic plates which are very dynamic and active. This area of IndoneFor this reason, SRGI2013 was born, a national coordinate system that was consistent and compatible with the global coordinate system. SRGI considers changes in coordinates based on time functions. Problems arise when the coordinates of the old pillar still use the DGN95 datum reference system. Many published maps or geodetic control network use the old coordinate system, then the mapping user has difficulty getting the conversion of coordinates change aforesaid. The purpose of this study is to produce coordinate transformation parameters to change the coordinates of the old datum (DGN95) into coordinates in the SRGI2013 datum. The results of the transformation parameters resulted are used to change coordinates that are still in the old datum. In addition to making it easier for users to transform coordinates. The coordinate transformation method used uses the 3-dimensional coordinate transformation of the Bursa-Wolf model (7 parameters) and the Affinity model (10 parameters).
