The process of transforming the scanned coordinates of an old Sea chart to a new datum realised through orthophotos is described in details: from pixel coordinates to geographical coordinates, collocational interpolation griding of differences to coordinates in the new datum. A discussion of tools for this kind of transformation of non-conformal projection data to a conformal realisation of a datum. The term non-conformal means: Originally the old coordinate system is realised as a conformal coordinate system, - but compared to a new realisation of higher accuracy the old one is definitely not conformal.
