In Europe there exist a very lot of different Coordinate Reference Systems (CRS),
and new CRS are
defined. For building up a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI), one condition is that all spatial data
(geodata) which are used for a specific purpose need to use the same CRS simultaniously. For
that, the definition of each CRS ant their relations has to be known.
This collection of European Coordinate Reference Systems collects a lot of paneuropean,
and national CRS (map projections, geodetic reference systems) informations.
