EPSG releases geodetic guidance note

Essential reading for users and managers of spatial data.

Following the integration of the authoritative European Petroleum Survey Group (EPSG) into the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (OGP—OITJ Feb 06), OGP is now responsible for both the EPSG database and the UKOOA positioning formats.


Committee chair Jack Verouden (Shell) said, ‘The EPSG database is now the world’s standard reference source for positional data and it is appropriate that we are now maintaining and enhancing this valuable resource. The most recent addition is a guidance note titled ‘Geodetic Awareness. This should be essential reading for all non-geodesists working with different coordinate reference systems. The note, datasets and standards are available free from www.ogp.org.uk.
