I am looking for a website which lists all common coordinate systems with their attributes (angle true, area true). I aware of spatialreference.org but this do not give me the desired information(or I am too blind to find them).

A plus would be a searchable system with EPSG codes. Double plus would be a side in German (because I am lazy)

    What software do you use ? Because I asked that ESRI has their common coordinate systems on pdf that you can find on google.

  • you do mean this pdf ? I am using qgis, but my question aims for a more general purpose: entering an EPSG code and get the attributes as result

    Are you looking for an extended version of mathworks.com/help/map/summary-and-guide-to-projections.html for example?

As @PROBERT cites, if you are interested in discovering information about EPSG codes, one web such site is http://epsg.io, so if you want to find out about EPSG::4326 you would use http://epsg.io/4326 and if you wanted to learn about EPSG::27700 you would use http://epsg.io/27700.

Additionally you may find the official EPSG registry (http://www.epsg-registry.org) useful. You can search by code in the page, or if you know the urn you can retrieve WKT or GML directly such as with EPSG::4326 as WKT and EPSG::27700 as GML
