Group on "Future Development of ETRS89"
The Working Group on “Future Development of ETRS89” was
established 2009. The TWG decided to create a Working Group (WG)
dedicated to the ETRS89 future development, realisation and its
target users. Another important aspect that this WG should deal
with is to clarify its adequateness with its parent system, the (ITRS)
for all geoscience’s applications, satellite navigation systems
and geo-information communities. In effect the IAG is initiating a
process for a formal international recognition of the ITRS and
EUREF is promoting the adoption of the ETRS89 within INSPIRE
directive. Therefore a clear understanding and clarification is
needed, emphasizing that the ETRS89 is linked to the ITRS by a
pure mathematical formula.
Chaired by Martin Lidberg
it was closed 2011 after successfully reaching its goals.
