Information system for the
European Combined Geodetic Network (ECGN)

In order to be able to refer to an integrated European reference network for spatial reference purposes, the creation of an ECGN is already under way. This network combines measurements of the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and other space techniques with gravity and levelling measurements. Sea level and other measurements will also be integrated into this network.
