EEA reference grid for Ireland (1km), May 2011
The grid is based on proposal at the 1st European Workshop on Reference Grids in 2003 and later INSPIRE geographical grid systems. The sample grid available here is part of a set of three polygon grids in 1, 10 and 100 kilometres. The grids cover at least country borders and, where applicable, marine Exclusive Economic Zones v2.0, http://www.vliz.be/vmdcdata/marbound. Note that the extent of the grid into the marine area does not reflect the extent of the territorial waters.
The reference grids are based on ETRS89 Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area projection with parameters: latitude of origin 52°N, longitude of origin 10°E, false northing 3210000.0m, false easting 4321000.0m. Origin of the grid is calculated from 0mN 0mE of projection. The method followed the instructions for the EEA fishnet tool described in the EEA GIS guideline available from http://www.eionet.europa.eu/gis.
