**projected coordinate system**is defined on a flat, two-dimensional surface. Unlike a geographic**coordinate****system**, a**projected coordinate system**has constant lengths, angles, and areas across the two dimensions. A**projected coordinate system**is always based on a geographic**coordinate****system**that is based on a sphere or spheroid.A

**projected coordinate system**, also known as a**projected****coordinate**reference**system**, a planar**coordinate****system**, or grid reference**system**, is a type of spatial reference**system**that represents locations on the Earth using cartesian**coordinates**( x, y) on a planar surface created by a particular map**projection**.

In a PCS identified by x,y**coordinates**on a grid. The ‘x’ lines represents longitude, and ‘y’ lines represents latitude.**Projected Coordinate**Systems are defined on a flat, two-dimensional surface with different projections causing different types of distortions.

**projected****coordinate****system**(PCS) is a GCS that has been flattened using a map**projection**. Your data must have a GCS before it knows where it is on earth. Projecting your data is optional, but projecting your map is not. Maps are flat, so your map must have a PCS in order to know how to draw.
