Implications and caveats

Severity: Warning

There might be a shift of about 300 metres between different spatial reference systems, so depending on the spatial scale one is working at, not knowing the geodetic datum can make an otherwise perfectly serviceable record unfit for purpose.

Data custodian recommendations

Try to find a correct value for geodeticDatum in epsg.io.
