Field Value

An integer indicating the unique identifier of this GeographicTransformation.


You may see this number referred to in some ArcGIS documentation as a factory code, projection engine code, or a Well Known Identifier (WKID). For example, ArcGIS Server web service APIs define WKID parameters which allow you to specify a particular unit; developing for ArcGIS using ArcObjects, these numbers are defined in enumeration sets that begin with 'esriSR', for example the enumerations esriSRUnitType and esriSRUnit2Type define identifiers for types of unit of measurement.

These identifier numbers are based on an industry standard defined by the European Petroleum Survey Group (EPSG), and very occasionally, the code value for which an enumeration stands may change; for this reason it is recommended that you use the enumeration member rather than the numeric value in code. Any changes will be noted in the change reports for this API. You can find out more information about the units and coordinate systems defined by the EPSG at their website,
