When sorting out the stereographic problems of some applications and
databases, one might also want to look at the oldies:
For the above mentioned e.g. the ESRI-ArcGIS projected coordinate systems
list says "Double_Stereographic".
Dutch RD, Romanian Stereo 33 & 70, Polish quasi-stereographic have already
I believe Dutch RD can be approximated with sub-mm accuracy by sterea.
Polish quasi-stereographic can only be approximated by sterea with sub-cm
accuracy. Probably this projection will be in use until at least 2009.
The sterea approximation for Romanian Stereo 70 is also not better than
sub-cm level, but I have not enough test points to verify this.
the "Alaska Conformal" projection is a unique modified oblique stereographic
projection. See PJ23Z0 or alconfor/inv in GCTP2. The GCTP test suite has
enough test points.
