The development of the Lambert coordinate system 2005 follows the
introduction of ETRS89 in Europe. From 1989 to 2002, the IGN has reviewed
the national geodetic network using the GPS network. This changes has led to
the Lambert 2005 projection. For a given location, the difference between
the coordinates in Lambert 1972 and 2005 are relatively low (+ / - 1
kilometer). Considering this small difference, when we received map data in
Lambert 2005 without the coordinate system used has been specified, you
might think, if you don't pay too much attention, that the data were still
in Lambert 1972. Therefore, the IGN has added 500 kilometers in X and Y
(Lambert 2008) : you see thus immediately that the projection system used is
no longer the Lambert 1972.
