55-1703. PLANE COORDINATES. (1) The plane coordinates to be used in expressing the position or location of a point in the appropriate zone of the IPCS shall consist of two (2) distances expressed in the units of measure used by the NGS at the time the SPCS is published. The east x-coordinate shall give the distance east of the y-axis, and the north y-coordinate shall give the distance north of the x-axis. The y-axis of any zone shall be parallel with the central meridian of that zone. The x-axis of any zone shall be at right angles to the central meridian of that zone.
(2) The coordinates described in subsection (1) of this section shall be made to depend upon and conform to the most recent system of plane coordinates, known as the SPCS and based upon the NSRS as maintained and provided by the NGS or its successors, provided such system has been adopted by administrative rule by the board.
