GPS Control Network

The SWRCMP maintains a network of GPS control points around the south west coast. In January 2016 all of the control points were updated to the OSTN15 transformation. The Map Viewer uses the OSTN15 coordinates. Both the OSTN02 and the OSTN15 control network shapefiles are available for download:
