Map co-ordinate


Map co-ordinates are numerical co-ordinate values indicating the location of an object on globe or in the national grid co-ordinate system. Map co-ordinates are given either as geographical or horizontal co-ordinates. Geographical co-ordinates are described as degrees of latitude and longitude. The location of a point situated in the horizontal co-ordinate system is given as values of X and Y co-ordinates, that is, northing and easting.

In Finland the national horizontal co-ordinate system used is the basic co-ordinate system and the uniform co-ordinate system according to the national grid co-ordinate system (KKJ). This Finnish co-ordinate system is being replaced by the pan-European EUREF 89 co-ordinate system.
