Notes about datum conversions

Datum conversions between all realizations of NAD27, NAD83, and WGS84 are not practical, or sometimes not strictly possible. Many of the issues are associated with the inability to convert between the original realization of NAD83 and more recent realizations. While error could be reduced by introducing an intermediate HARN conversion, separate transformations would have to be implemented for each state, which significantly increases the complexity of the application.
