Map of the Netherlands

When trying to map something in the Netherlands there are roughly two systems which are commonly used. The internationally known WGS84 system and the Dutch system called “Rijksdriehoek”. Both are used and while WGS84 is gradually becomming the standard a large number of goverment and semi-goverment organisations still use the “Rijksdriehoek” to determine a position on the map.
