FAQ: What National Transformation Version 2 (NTv2) geographic transformation grids are supported in ArcGIS Desktop?

Question

What National Transformation Version 2 (NTv2) geographic transformation grids are supported in ArcGIS Desktop?

Answer

The following National Transformation Version 2 (NTv2) geographic transformation grids are supported in ArcGIS Desktop at various versions.

Warning:
Transformation grid files (.GSB) for some of these transformations are not installed with ArcGIS Desktop. If the grid is not installed, the geographic transformation will not execute, and the data will not be transformed to the new datum.
The transformation grids must be installed in the following path:
%ARCGISHOME%\pedata\ntv2

Create a folder with the country name in LOWER CASE LETTERS, with no spaces in the name. Save the GSB file in the folder for that country. For example, for New Zealand, the GSB file should be placed in:
%ARCGISHOME%\pedata\ntv2\newzealand
