South Korea Introducing New Geodetic System

Found this in the Korean Times:

"The government yesterday designated Ullung Island as the starting point of a new geodetic system prior to changing to the World Geodetic System (WGS-84). To date the Tokyo Datum has been used for measuring distances after Japan occupied the peninsula in 1910."
This is great news for the location-bases app developers in South Korea. Finally they can can that dang Tokyo Datum for something that everyone actually uses—including the Japaneese.
