### EPSG Notes

Since 1972 a modified form of the two standard parallel case has been used in Belgium. For the Lambert Conic Conformal (2 SP Belgium), the formulas for the standard two standard parallel case given above are used except for:

```	Easting, E = EF + r sin (* - a)
Northing, N = NF + rF - r cos (* - a)
and for the reverse formulas
* = ((*' + a)/n) +*0
where a = 29.2985 seconds.","For Projected Coordinate System Belge l972 / Belge Lambert 72

Parameters:
Ellipsoid  International 1924,  a = 6378388 metres
1/f = 297
then e = 0.08199189 and e^2 = 0.006722670

First Standard Parallel        49o50'00""N       =   0.86975574 rad
Second Standard Parallel  51o10'00""N       =   0.89302680 rad
Latitude False Origin          90o00'00""N       =   1.57079633 rad
Longitude False Origin         4o21'24.983""E = 0.07604294 rad
Easting at false origin EF        150000.01  metres
Northing at false origin NF    5400088.44  metres

Forward calculation for:

first gives :
m1     = 0.64628304         m2 = 0.62834001
t        = 0.59686306          tF  = 0.00000000
t1      = 0.36750382           t2 = 0.35433583
n       = 0.77164219            F = 1.81329763
r        = 37565039.86         rF = 0.00
alpha =	0.00014204     theta = 0.01953396

Then Easting E  =      251763.20 metres
Northing N =      153034.13 metres

Reverse calculation for same easting and northing first gives:
theta' = 0.01939192      r' = 548041.03
t' = 0.35913403
Then Latitude   =    50o40'46.461""N
Longitude =     5o48'26.533""E
