ABSTRACT

In this article the strategy of the European Terrestrial Reference System (ETRS89)
implementation in Romania, is described as an urgent necessity from the viewpoint of
the Member States of the European Community policies and standards adopted in recent
years by European’s standardization bodies. The national system is the Stereographic
Projection System adopted in Romania in 1970, attached to the local ellipsoid
Krassovski 42, whose parameters are different from the European ETRS89 datum. The
idea of the implementing a formal system ETRS 89 in Romania, came to harmonize
with the European Parliament and Council directive to create an Infrastructure for
Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE). INSPIRE provides to the users integrated
spatial information services allowing identification and access spatial or geographical
information from different data sources in an interoperable way for a variety of
purposes. Article outlines the steps taken by the competent bodies to implement the
coordinate reference system ETRS89 in Romania and state of the infrastructure created
for this purpose. Is also presented the strategy adopted to achieve TransDat software, a
software package designed to offer a rigorous national standard coordinate
transformation between ETRS89 and Krasovski42 systems.
