Definition:
Harmonised multi-resolution grid with a common point of origin and standardised location and size of grid cells [INSPIRE Directive]
Description:
NOTE 1 Geographical grid systems are not limited to rectified grids or grids using cell axes parallel to the meridians.NOTE 2 This document adopts the definition of the 2003 Workshop on European Reference Grids, which includes not only the grid describing the domain of a coverage but also its range. Thus, a 'geographical grid' is equivalent to an ISO 19123 coverage. The unqualified term 'grid' may refer either to a grid geometry or a geographical grid (coverage) depending on the context.
