The aim of this article is to determine the coordinates of the points of Ott's Coordinate System in contemporary obligatory reference coordinate systems, which means the coordinate system of Datum of Uniform Trigonometric Cadastral Network. Optimal transformation relations have been searched in such a way, so as not to disturb the accuracy of calculations and measurements acquired in Ott's triangulation. Ott's system of coordinates was and is hugely important particularly during the remediation works performed between 1996 and 1998, aimed at removing the consequences of coal mining in the Ostrava-Karviná Coal District.
