In the previous recipe, you learned that many CRS exist and data can be converted from one form to another.
In some cases, CRS, even if they are different, are really very similar. So, for general mapping purposes, you can consider them identical.
In this recipe, you'll discover a simple, yet very useful, tool that ships with GeoServer: the reprojection console. It lets you have a look at how coordinates change when you move data from an SRS to another one.
EPSG:4326in Source CRS and
EPSG:4269in Target CRS. Then, insert
POINT(-98.5795 39.828175) ...
