What a word… Rijksdriehoekscoordinaten

I don’t know how to even pronounce that –  “Rijksdriehoekscoordinaten” let alone talk to you about the different projection systems.   Lucky we have guys like Arno 😉  His interesting post on “Projection Hell” is a good read.

Ricks dryhok sco ord ination….?

    Literaly translated it just means "State Triangle Coordinate System", that is not that hard is it? 😉

    To pronounce it is probably a bit harder indeed. At the moment I can’t think of some English words that give the same sound.
