Producer Field Guide

Gauss Kruger projection is the same as the Transverse Mercator projection, with the exception that Gauss Kruger uses a fixed scale factor of 1. Gauss Kruger is available only in ellipsoidal form.

Many countries such as China and Germany use Gauss Kruger in 3-degree zones instead of 6-degree zones for UTM.

For more information, see Transverse Mercator.
