I need to import DCW (http://www.maproom.psu.edu/dcw/dcw_about.shtml) data
in GRASS, and I need to create a location with the correct projection to
On the DCW web site I read as follows:
COORDINATE SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
The coordinate system is described according to ARC/INFO standards. For more
information, see the project command in the ARC/INFO Users Guide.
General Projection Information
The coordinate pairs are measured by latitude/longitude and
have not been altered by projection algorithms.
If you are using ARCVIEW, the projection MUST be GEOGRAPIC
in order to reproject.
Coordinate pairs are measured in decimal degrees.
The spheroid for the data is the Clark 1866.
I created a location with the following projection: +proj=longlat
Is it correct? What would you suggest me?
