Transitioning to the United States 2022 National Coordinate System without Getting Left Behind
Tuesday July 28, 2020 | 3-4 pm EDT / noon – 1pm EDT
The National Geodetic Survey (NGS) has for several years been developing - and promoting - the ongoing modernization and evolution of the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS), toward the 2022 goal of replacing the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83) and the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88). The new positioning paradigm will better leverage the utility of modern positioning technologies - notably the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) – and will impact all users of geospatial data, either directly or indirectly. This presentation will discuss the whats, whys, hows, and whens of 2022 Datum effort.
