Common European Chorological Grid Reference System (CGRS)

Data Created 23 Oct 2003 Published 23 Oct 2003 Last modified 23 Jan 2015, 03:57 PM
In year 2000 representatives of the atlas groups mapping the European vascular plants, mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, fungi and invertebrates agreed to use the CGRS as a common grid for species distribution mapping. The CGRS grid is modified from the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS). The MGRS itself is an alphanumeric version of a numerical UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) or UPS (Universal Polar Stereographic) grid coordinate.
