Albanian Geodetic Frame which is in use in the Republic of Albania, is approved by the Decision of Council of Ministers no. 669, dated on 08/07/2013 and it is called:

“Korniza Rreferuese Gjeodezike Shqiptare 2010” (KRGJSH-2010), “2010”, is the index related with the “epoch” used to define geodetic coordinates for all the geodetic points in the Republic of Albania.

KRGJSH-2010, shall be determined on the basis of the European Geodetic Reference System. KRGJSH- 2010, shall be used for all the applications associated with the use of geodetic coordinates in the country. Relationship between KRGJSH-2010 and the classic coordinate reference systems which are used in our country, until the entry into force of the KRGJSH-2010, will be made by using the transformation parameters calculated for each case.

KRGJSH-2010 includes:

I. Fundamental geodetic parameters determined in Geodetic Reference System (GRS-80):

1) Equatorial radius; a = 6 378 137m

2)Geocentric gravitational constant, including mass of the atmosphere; GM = 3 986 005 x 10-8 m3s-2

3) Dynamical form factor; J2 = 108 263 x 10-8

4)Reciprocal of flattening; 1/f = 298.257 222 101

5)Angular velocity of rotation; ? = 7 292115.0 x 10-11rad.sek-1

II.Geodetic coordinate system ETRS89. Realization ETRF2000, Epoch 2010. III.Height system. The System shall be realized through the bench marks the State Leveling Networks involved in the United European Levelling Network (UELN) defined in European Vertical Reference System (EVRS) using gravity data defined in the unified system International Gravity Standardization Network 1971 (IGSN 1971).

IV. System of plain coordinates. The system of plain coordinates shall be realized using two Cartographic Projections:

1.Transverse Mercator Projection (TMzn), for mapping at scales larger than 1:500 000.

2.Lambert Conic Conformal Projection, for mapping at scales smaller than 1:500 000.

3.Central Meridian: ? = 20 0 ; 4. Scale factor at the central meridian: 1; 5. False easting: 500 000 m; 6. False northing: 0 m;
