Abstract

Transformation between ellipsoids also called datum transformation implies coordinate conversion from one ellipsoid to another ellipsoid, most frequently to be done by Helmert seven-parameter transformation. Transformation parameters involve three rotation, three translation and scale factor and they can be calculated using reference points which are known before and after transformation. Transformation parameters can be obtained with appropriate measurements and in accoradance with measurement uncertainties, they are produce errors of transformed coordinates. This paper describes standard errors  of transformed coordinates using Helmert seven-parameter transformation, when switching  from ellipsoid WGS84 to Bessel ellipsoid.
