I've just downloaded the latest Natura 2000 shapefiles to use them in ArcGIS. When I try to visualize the original shape (which is ETRS89 LAEA projection) in WGS84 it has a spatial shift of 90 meters. I double checked the projection files and they are correct.
Later I tried to use your WMS service in Google Earth which has been projected to WGS84 by your service and it has the same error. Can you please check if everything is OK with the data or can you give me your parameters for the ETRS to WGS projection? Providing the data in WGS84 would be great as well.

Good Morning,

We are aware of the shift error and working on a new corrected release. It will come in production very soon.
We will send a tweet from our discomap account and post it on the website when it is ready.

Thank you very much for your feedback
