Common European Chorological Grid Reference System (CGRS)

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.
