Don’t miss this session at the 2018 Annual Conference: New Datums are Coming in 2022 – This Will Affect You
This session will be led by John Ellingson, Geodetic Advisor – Great Lakes Region (WI, IL, IN, MI), National Geodetic Survey
The National Geodetic Survey (NGS) is in the middle of a 10-year project to create new Geopotential (vertical) and 3D Geometric (~horizontal) datums for the United States, with plans to implement them in 2022. This will impact every geospatial information creator/user in the United States. Learn why and how NGS is developing these new datums. We will discuss how NGS is preparing tools that will enable users to transform between the current datums and the new datums.
