Remarks : All necessary information for conversion of geographic coordinates from most of the Geodetic Datums in the above list to WGS-84 is contained in the 'User's Handbook on Datum Transformations involving WGS-84', prepared by the US Defense Mapping Agency and which is available from the IHB as IHO Publication S-60 (English and French Versions), along with an associated standard datum transformation software on floppy disk called 'MADTRAN'. The resulting latitude and longitude offsets can be encoded in the attribute SHIPAM. Additional information on the transformation as indicated in IHO Publication S-60, e.g., TOY-M (Mean Solution), TOY-A (Japan), TOY-B (South Korea) or TOY-C (Okinawa) in relation to Tokyo Datum, may be encoded in the attribute INFORM or NINFORM.
