Hi Jeremy and Colleagues,

I saw this too. It also struck me that the 2020 timescale is probably tied to the revision of ISO 19111 CRS standard, which is meant to address dynamic datums, which could help tackle the simple approach of WGS 84 and expectations of higher precision.

Subject: Australia plans new co-ordinates to fix sat-nav gap

Hi all. Was just reading through the news this morning when I spotted this article:

Australia plans new co-ordinates to fix sat-nav gap [1]

Probably old news to many of you, but perhaps containing some interesting points about CRS for the BP document- especially noting "driverless cars" as the main reason; surely this counts as a high-precision spatial application!
