Schagen Municipality in North Holland, Netherlands

Schagen is a city and municipality in the northwestern Netherlands. It is located between Alkmaar and Den Helder, in the region of West Friesland and the province of North Holland. It received city rights in 1415. In 2013, Schagen merged with Zijpe and Harenkarspel. Together they have formed a new municipality, which is also called Schagen. The townhall is located in the main town of Schagen.

In 2005, the municipal council of the former municipality of Zijpe decided that the N9 road had to be moved; as a consequence, all of the houses in De Stolpen would have to be demolished. The national government changed this decision in December 2006, which saved the hamlet. This saved what is essentially a row of a few contiguous homes on the north side of the road, anchored by a Chinese restaurant .

Geographic coordinate system Coordinate system

A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position; alternatively, a geographic position may be expressed in a combined three-dimensional Cartesian vector. A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. To specify a location on a plane requires a map projection.
