Geocentric CRS used in Europe - ETRS89

ETRS89 is a geocentric CRS last revised on December 5, 2020 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 uses the European Terrestrial Reference System 1989 as its datum. ETRS89 is a CRS for Geodetic survey. It was defined by information from Norwegian Geodetic Institute geodetic publication 1990:1. Also at EuroGeographics, http://crs.bkg.bund.de/crs-eu/. The distinction in usage between ETRF89 and ETRS89 is confused: although in principle conceptually different in practice both are used as synonyms.
