What is new

 

Version 9.5 of 2018-08-29 replaces version 9.4 of 2018-05-29 and includes the revisions made only in the on-line registry in versions 9.4.1 and 9.4.2.

New to version 9.5, 2018-08-29 (Registry including SQL download and Access)

  • Changes as documented in Change Records through 2018.049, but with actions still remaining on some change requests.
  • New data for Guam, Northern Marianas Islands, Puerto Rico, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Slovenia, United States and US Virgin Islands.
  • Significant revision to data for Canada and former Yugoslavia (Boznia and Herzegovina, Croatia, FYR Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia)
  • Minor revision to data for Algeria, China (Macao) and Guam.
  • For several coordinate operation methods the description of the formula has had use of atan versus atan2 functions clarified.

Please note that through Dataset version 9.3 the encoding of the Access database and SQL scripts has been CP1252. With effect from the v9.4 release (May 2018), the encoding of these products has been brought in line with that of the online registry and is in UTF-8. The zip files for previous versions of the Dataset in CP1252 encoding have file name like "epsg-v9_3sql-MySQL.zip", "epsg-v9_3sql-Oracle.zip" and "epsg-v9_3sql-PostgreSQL.zip" whereas the zip files for this and future versions of the Dataset in UTF-8 encoding have file name like "EPSG-MySQL-export-9.4.zip", "EPSG-ORACLE_SQL-export-9.4.zip" and "EPSG-PSQL-export-9.4.zip"; the naming of the script files within the zip files is unchanged.


New to version 9.5.1, 2018-09-08 (online registry, including SQL scripts, but not Access)

Version 9.5.1 of 2018-09-08 includes the revisions made only in the on-line registry and replaces version 9.5 of 2018-08-29.

  • New data for United States (Idaho).
  • Significant revision to data for Boznia and Herzegovina.

 

Notice for future

IOGP is planning for the EPSG Dataset to adopt the recent changes made to the ISO 19111 data model to describe dynamic coordinate reference systems and datum ensembles. We anticipate that the updated model will be introduced in 2019. Details of proposed changes will be circulated later this year.
