From September 2011 to January 2015, the ICC will publish all of its products and services in ETRS89 and ED50
The ICC publishes the methodology used to transform its databases so that users are able to carry out the transition to ETRS89 consistently with the cartography.
With the INSPIRE programme, the European Community promotes the harmonisation of geoinformation all over Europe. It aims to establish the transition to the new ETRS89 reference system in all the member states, in order to facilitate interoperability between them. Decree 1071/2007, which makes the ETRS89 system official, establishes three key dates for the transition from ED50 to ETRS89.
Since the Decree was published, the ICC has been working to adapt all its products and services to the ETRS89 system and also to facilitate the transformation of existing products. When the study and implementation phase is over, the stage of publishing the products and services, effective in September 2011 will take place, and users will be informed of the procedures used by the ICC to transform its products. This transformation has been approved by the Cartographic Coordination Commission of Catalonia and enables users to carry out their own transition to ETRS89 consistently with the ICC's cartography databases.
