Geograph ideas ::

Migrate Ireland Photos to use ITM Grid

proposed by Barry Hunter

Ireland have moved to a new standard grid - the Irish Transverse Mercator Grid

When Geograph was launched it made more sense to use the older Irish National Grid,

As at the time many maps etc where still produced in ING for example. (and not sure we were even aware of ITM!)

... Geograph could perhaps now move to ITM, as most paper maps etc and even online projects are ITM.

It will necessitate small number of images to be reallocated, to different as the grids don't exactly align. And may change the status of a even smaller number (become or unbecome cross grid)
