GGR99 is a geoid model for the Reunion Island computed by IGN (Institut National de l'Information Geographique et Forestiere). It covers the area from -21.50° to -20.76° in latitude and from 55.14° to 55.94° in longitude, with a grid resolution of 0.02°. It is computed by interpolating GPS/levelling points and it represents the height of the IGN89 reference surface above the GRS80 ellipsoid in the RGR92 geodetic reference frame. The expected accuracy of the GGR99 model is 30-50 cm.
