We present a local classification of smooth surfaces in P3 in terms of the singularity types (of codimension ≤ 4) of their central projections to a plane. Based on our classification result, we also give exact normal forms to surface germs at transition moments on bifurcations with respect to parabolic curves and flecnodal curves.
