Creating a user-defined coordinate system was done by adding a new row to the MDSYS.CS_SRS table before the 10.2 release. As of 10.2 coordinate system support is based upon the EPSG(European Petroleum Survey Group) model which is implemented using a different table structure.
For more information about this new implementation:
Spatial User's Guide and Reference 11g Release 2.
This note provides an sample script to create a user-defined coordinate system based upon this new EPSG model.
Assume we have a user-defined coordinate system in a pre-10.2 database release having the following definition.
AUTH_NAME: VDOT Custom Lambert Conformal Conic
SPHEROID["GRS_1980", 6378137.0, 298.257222101]],
The goal is to create the equivalent coordinate system in the 10.2 release.
