CHANGE TO ETRS89
(Post date: 2012/03/08)
Geographic data and spatial reference system has been changed. From March 8th, we have passed from ED50 system to ETRS89 system. Therefore, all the geographical data that is provided by b5m is in ETRS89 reference system.
Why this change of reference? In order to have more accurate spatial data and data integration in all European countries, in order to have an unique coordinate system for all data, and to use GNSS data without changing the ellipsoid.

NEW LIDAR DATA
(Post date: 2011/10/21)
In the Utilities section of the b5m classic viewer has been added for downloading the 2008 LIDAR flight data edited by the Basque Government, and the 2010 LIDAR data of the corridor Zumarraga-Azkotia, performed by the Department of Transportation and Road Infrastructure of the Gipuzkoa Provincial Council.
SHIFT FROM ED50 TO ETRS89 IN GIPUZKOA
(Post date: 2011/05/09)
The results of the ED50-ETRS89 adjustment for the ED50 municipal topography has been included in Geodesy ; these have already been submitted to the relevant municipalities for consideration with the objective of transforming their bases to ETRS89 in compliance with both RD 1071/2007 and Gipuzkoa's Geodetic Infrastructure. Until their definite transformation to ETRS89, users can access the necessary Helmert parameters (see Geodesic Benchmarks) to integrate ETRS89 surveys in the ED50 municipal topographic bases.
NEW REFERENCING FRAMEWORK IGS08
(Post date: 2011/04/15)
Due to the framework change from April 17, 2011 for all products of the International GNSS Service (IGS), AutoGNSS users may suffer service discontinuities. During the next two weeks a number of updates will be undertaken, including the full integration and validation of the new antenna calibration kit (igs08.atx) and core stations (IGS08_core.txt).
UPDATE ON THE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SURVEYING IN GIPUZKOA
(Post date: 2011/03/18)
We have just updated the document "Recommendations for surveying in Gipuzkoa": http://b5m.gipuzkoa.net/web5000/docu/geodesia/GomendioakRecomendacionesGeodesiaGipuzkoa.pdf.
We welcome your opinion in order to continue improving both the document above and Gipuzkoa's Geodetic Infrastructure maintained by Gipuzkoa Provincial Council.
GIPUZKOA GNSS NETWORK ACTIVE AGAIN
(Post date: 2011/03/18)
Due to an error beyond our Department's control, resulting from the Gipuzkoa Provincial Council's communications operator change, the services broadcasted from IP 220.127.116.11 (real time correction and Rinex download for post-processing) were disrupted from 12pm UTC on the 10th of March to 12pm UTC on the 16th of March. The reason for this communication is to convey our most sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.
WFS SERVICE RELEASED
(Post date: 2010/11/19)
The OGC WFS (Open Geospatial Consortium Web Feature Service) is available in Gipuzkoa's Spatial Data Infrastructure (gSDI). This service supports querying or obtaining all the characteristics of geographic vectorial features of the gSDI. The data is obtained in GML format via Internet. More detail at this link.
NEW TOOL FOR REPORTING MAPPING PROBLEMS
(Post date: 2010/11/08)
From now on b5m users can report mapping problems. Thus, if you see a problem on the mapping of the Gipuzkoa Spatial Data Infrastructure, and want to tell us what is wrong (incorrect address of a building, no building at all, incorrect name of a street, no street at all, etc.), go to b5m's classic viewer, place yourself where you want to report the problem and click TOOLS > Report a problem.
G-IRUDIA V3.0 RELEASED
(Post date: 2010/11/05)
A new version of G-Irudia has been released, which includes the following improvements:
- Faster access to maps and orthophotos, which are now requested to the WMS service of the SDI of Gipuzkoa.
- The application is now a WMS client, and may incorporate WMS services from other SDIs.
- G-Irudia is now fully integrated into Autodesk applications. It has been programmed through .NET technology (for which the various applications of Autodesk offers a complete programming interface) incorporating all its potential.
NEW GNSS CORS
(Post date: 2009/11/12)
ELGOIBAR CORS of Grupo InlandGEO has been added to Gipuzkoa GNSS Network.
