@kbevers The only part I'm unsure is the PROJ id name. "colombia_urban" is larger than our habits, but I don't really expect people to have to type PROJ strings using it at hand. They'd rather just use the EPSG CRS codes for the known instances of this projection.

It is a bit long, yes. The ISO3166 abbreviation for Colombia is "COL", so perhaps "col_urban"? Not sure if that is better. Preferable I'd want a more generic name but this projection seems to be quite specific to Colombia...

@rouault does this map to the esri IGAC_Plano_Cartesiano projection? See https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/mapping/properties/igac-plano-cartesiano.htm

absolutely from what I can see in the records of pe_list_projcs.csv where for example ESRI:102771 just matches EPSG:6247. Mapping added

This one was an excuse for local institutions/users to distrust FOSS4G.
