| 53 | |

| 54 | ===== Map parameters: ===== |

| 55 | |

| 56 | * ''longitude_of_central_meridian'' |

| 57 | * Either ''standard_parallel'' or ''scale_factor_at_projection_origin'' |

| 58 | * ''false_easting'' |

| 59 | * ''false_northing'' |

| 60 | |

| 61 | ===== Map coordinates: ===== |

| 62 | |

| 63 | The x (abscissa) and y (ordinate) rectangular coordinates are identified by the ''standard_name'' attribute value ''projection_x_coordinate'' and ''projection_y_coordinate'' respectively. |
