I have checked the projection list at

This states the belgian use a modified form of lcc with two parallels
which does not seem to be supported by proj.4

ESRI however simply states it is Lambert Conformal Conical and list the
parameters at:


Is there anyone listening who has used the belgian system, i am
wondering how big the error could be if we simply pretend it is standard
Lambert Conformal Conical like ESRI seems to be doing ?

Thanks for listening,
