The National Survey and Cadastre in Denmark (Kort & Matrikelstyrelsen; KMS) is responsible for the definition of the national referencesystem on the Faroe Islands. In 2008 KMS and the Environmental Agency on the Faroe Island (Umhvørvisstovan; US) decided to define a new national reference system on the Faroe Islands. This new reference system consists of a GPS based reference frame and a height reference frame based on levelling. Furthermore, a geoid model and a map projection are determined. The geoid model is determined by the National Space Institute at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Space). The reference system on the Faroe Islands is based on ETRS89, which is realized through GPS observations at four points. Since the Faroe Islands (FO) are located at the northwestern corner of the EUREF network (figure 1 & 2), we study the influence of network geometry on densification on the Faroe Islands.
