Data Center Description
Europe is merging closer. Facts for this are the European Community or the new European currency Euro. But what about a homogeneous Geospatial Data Infrastructure? The requirements for that are a common data model, similar data capturing methods and metadata in several languages. The most fundamental model aspects of geospatial data are coordinate reference systems like geodetic reference systems and map projections. They are the frame in which coordinates as the holder of the geometric information get their spatial semantics.
