Projected Coordinates - definition(s)

projected coordinates - [coordinate systems] A measurement of locations on the earth's surface expressed in a two-dimensional system that locates features based on their distance from an origin (0,0) along two axes, a horizontal x-axis representing east-west and a vertical y-axis representing north-south. Projected coordinates are transformed from latitude and longitude to x,y coordinates using a map projection.
