Learn About the New Datums Coming in 2022

Join us at the upcoming WLIA Fall Regional Meeting where the 2022 datums will be discussed in-depth. Two back-to-back presentations will cover the NATRF2022 Task Force goals and objectives as well as highlight the 2022 National Geodetic Survey datums currently in development. The release of new 2022 datums will have a significant impact on surveying, mapping, and GIS across Wisconsin!

The first presentation will focus on the North American Terrestrial Reference Frame of 2022, or NATRF2022 and the task force that was created to help prepare for changes. The Task Force is organized under the Geospatial Committee of the Wisconsin Society of Land Surveyors. Howard Veregin, Wisconsin State Cartographer, chairs the Task Force, and Richard Kleinmann, who leads the WSLS Geospatial Committee, will be co-Chair. This talk will summarize the goals and plans of the Task Force to address the technical, educational, communication, legislative and software aspects required to respond to the change.

Next, speaker John Ellingson from the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) will discuss the upcoming 2022 datums in development and what changes the mapping community can expect as the datum becomes the new national standard across the United States. The National Geodetic Survey (NGS) is currently working to develop new datums that will replace the current horizontal datum (NAD83) and the current vertical datum (NAVD88). These new datums will have improved accuracy and precision and will be noticeably different from current datums.

We hope you can join us October 11 and 12th in Sturgeon Bay! Check out the links below to learn more about what we have planned.
