Sec. 21.076. DEFINITIONS. (450)(Text)

(a) For the purpose of precisely defining the Texas Coordinate System of 1927 and the Texas Coordinate System of 1983, the following definitions are adopted: (451)

(1) The Texas Coordinate System of 1927, North Zone, and the Texas Coordinate System of 1983, North Zone, is a Lambert conformal projection, having standard parallels at north latitudes 34 39' and 36 11', along which parallels the scale shall be exact. The origin of coordinates is at the intersection of the meridian 101 30' west longitude and the parallel 34 00' north latitude. The origin of the 1927 coordinate system is given the coordinates: x = 2,000,000 feet (720,000 varas) and y = 0 feet (0 varas). The origin of the 1983 coordinate system is given the coordinates: x = 200,000 meters (236,220 varas) and y = 1,000,000 meters (1,181,100 varas). (452)

(2) The Texas Coordinate System of 1927, North Central Zone, and the Texas Coordinate System of 1983, North Central Zone, is a Lambert conformal projection, having standard parallels at north latitudes 32 08' and 33 58', along which parallels the scale shall be exact. The origin of coordinates for the 1927 coordinate system is at the intersection of the meridian 97 30' west longitude and the parallel 31 40' north latitude. This origin is given the coordinates: x = 2,000,000 feet (720,000 varas) and y = 0 feet (0 varas). The origin of coordinates for the 1983 coordinate system is at the intersection of the meridian 98 30' west longitude and the parallel 31 40' north latitude. This origin is given the coordinates: x = 600,000 meters (708,660 varas) and y = 2,000,000 meters (2,362,200 varas). (453)

(3) The Texas Coordinate System of 1927, Central Zone, and the Texas Coordinate System of 1983, Central Zone, is a Lambert conformal projection, having standard parallels at north latitudes 30 07' and 31 53', along which parallels the scale shall be exact. The origin of coordinates is at the intersection of the meridian 100 20' west longitude and the parallel 29 40' north latitude. The origin of the 1927 coordinate system is given the coordinates: x = 2,000,000 feet (720,000 varas) and y = 0 feet (0 varas). The origin of the 1983 coordinate system is given the coordinates: x = 700,000 meters (826,770 varas) and y = 3,000,000 meters (3,543,300 varas). (454)

Our Mission
Objective

Our mission is to provide citizens free access to the laws and codes of their state utilizing a unique search engine that matches clients with qualified legal professionals who can help with specific issues.

Our goal is to do this in a manner that promotes open government and freedom of information, while providing attorneys with valuable tools to connect with qualified prospects in need of professional services.

Ignorance Is No Excuse
Your Right To Know The Law

All citizens have a right to have access to the laws that govern them. Citizen awareness and participation in government is fundamental to ensuring a sound democracy.

Although unfettered access to the law is a fundamental right to all citizens, there is no substitute for experienced legal counsel.

We do not recommend self-representation. We do, however, recognize that in an age where people routinely research legal matters online using everything from a smartphone to their xbox, both attorneys and clients alike can benefit from this resource.
