Several GNSS campaigns were conducted in Albania in order to connect the State Geodetic Network with the Global (ITRSxx/ITRFxx) or European Reference System (ETRS89/ETRF2000). Based on the findings of the GNSS campaign conducted in the fall of 2007 and spring of 2008, the optimal transformation parameters between the references ETRF2000 and ALB1986 were determined. In the field, the transformation outcomes made possible by the two existing planimetric transformation models created by the Department of Geodesy and the Military Geographical Institute of Firenze, Italy, are evaluated and compared. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the various planimetric transformation models and the outcomes of their tests conducted throughout Albania.
