NATO/STANAG 2211 endorses seven-parameter Helmert
Seven-parameter HelmertIn general, two three-dimensional coordinate systems in space are related to each other by the following equations:
D Y Translation along the Y-axis
D Z Translation along the Z-axis
RX Rotation about the X-axis
RY Rotation about the Y-axis
RZ Rotation about the Z-axis
D S Scale factor
