Yukon Projections

    Commonly used coordindate systems for Yukon data.

    NAD83 / Yukon Albers

    Default projection for all data coming from Yukon Government, see the Yukon Albers Projection for some background info.

    Projected Bounds: 26301.4186, 642942.0344, 983667.7511, 1710455.0365
    Scope
    : Spatial data storage and use for whole province in grid coordinates.
    Area: Canada - Yukon

    NAD83(CSRS) / Yukon Albers

    Not used so much yet, will likely get more common as more of the newer data from NRCAN comes into play.
