# ISN2004 / LCC Europe (EPSG:5639) Projection

I'm trying to set up projection for data files from Iceland.

The projection is ISN2004/LCC Europe using the EPSG:5639 projected coordinate system.

ISN2004 / LCC Europe - EPSG:5639

I have tried downloading projection files from the web site using a variety of the export formats but none of them work for me.

Can anybody suggestion how I go about this? I am still on version 15.1 so does 15.2 or the new version 16 offer this projection by default?

Thanks,

Ted Parisee.

5It looks like this is a standard Lambert Conformal Conic projection. Here is the text for a .PRJ description of the coordinate system:

PROJCS["ISN2004_LCC_Europe",GEOGCS["GCS_ISN2004",DATUM["D_Islands Net 2004",SPHEROID["GRS_1980",6378137,298.257222101]],PRIMEM["Greenwich",0],UNIT["Degree",0.017453292519943295]],PROJECTION["Lambert_Conformal_Conic"],PARAMETER["false_easting",4000000],PARAMETER["false_northing",2800000],PARAMETER["latitude_of_origin",52],PARAMETER["central_meridian",10],PARAMETER["standard_parallel_1",35],PARAMETER["standard_parallel_2",65],UNIT["Meter",1],PARAMETER["scale_factor",1.0]]

Save this text to a file with the extension .prj. If you open the Tools->Configure menu, then select the Projection tab, there is a button labeled Load From File. Select your newly saved file and you should see a new Lambert Conformal Conic projection in the tab.

294Trusted UserFor data from Iceland's "geodetic survey" (like their 20m DEM's and 30m Landsat imagery) the following worked for me.

Projection: Lambert Conformal Conic

Datum: ISN93

Planer Units: Meters

Scale Factor: 1

First Standard Parallel: 65.25

Second Standard Parallel: 65.75

Central Meridian: -19

Origin Latitude: 65

False Easting(m): 500000

False Northing(m): 500000

9After using the .PRJ text file for the coordinate system the files were not still in the proper location. Some files already had the proper projection and they did not match up.

However, using the ISN93 datum the files did match up. For this I used the "Init from EPSG" and 3057 for the ISN93 datum. This worked well for each of the files. I agree, GM should add ISN2004 to the built in datum list for newer data files.

Thanks for the suggestion,

Ted.
