Projected CRS used in Europe - ETRS89

ETRS89 / LAEA Europe is a projected CRS last revised on May 7, 2021 and is suitable for use in Europe - onshore and offshore: Albania; Andorra; Austria; Belgium; Bosnia and Herzegovina; Bulgaria; Croatia; Cyprus; Czech Republic; Denmark; Estonia; Faroe Islands; Finland; France; Germany; Gibralt (...more, see 'area of use' for details). ETRS89 / LAEA Europe uses the ETRS89 geographic 2D CRS as its base CRS and the Europe Equal Area 2001 (Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area) as its projection. ETRS89 / LAEA Europe is a CRS for Single CRS for all Europe. Used for statistical mapping at all scales and other purposes where true area representation is required. It was defined by information from European Commission Joint Research Centre "Map Projections for Europe". http://www.ec-gis.org. Use ETRS89 / LCC (code 3034) for conformal mapping at 1:500,000 scale or smaller or ETRS89 / UTM (codes 25828-37 or 3040-49) for conformal mapping at scales larger than 1:500,000.
