#### Field Value

A CoordinateSystem representing the coordinate system of this geometry object.# Remarks

A coordinate system is a framework for specifying coordinates; in ArcGIS Explorer, the CoordinateSystem class is used to represent a specific predefined framework for specifying locations on the surface of the earth. There are different types of coordinate system; some use linear units such as meters or miles, and some use angular units such as degrees.

The CoordinateSystem of a geometry indicates the coordinate system in which that geometry is defined. As a coordinate system defines the units of the coordinates, the CoordinateSystem of a Geometry defines the units of the coordinates of the geometry.
