Abstract

In this paper, a research has been conducted to find out the optimal combination of central meridian and scale factor of UTM-K to apply for the whole area of Korean peninsula. For this research, various combinations of central meridian and scale factor are set up and the cumulated level of distortion for each combination has been computed and compared to each other. In the case of using the central meridian and scale factor defined in the present UTM-K, the level of distortion shows about 47.0837X10-2. On the other hand, the minimum distortion which is about 21.0495x10-2 can be obtained when the 127° 26' for the central meridian and 0.99991 for scale factor are used for computation. Consequently, we can conclude that later result is the optimum combination of central meridian and scale factor for the Korean peninsula.
