NCAT is a Valuable Resource

The NGS Coordinate Conversion and Transformation tool, or NCAT not only provides technical assistance with the proper mathematics for making conversions and transformations, but it also provides information about a wealth of additional services that the NGS offers via the drop down menus on the website. If you are going to flag a NGS page NCAT is the one.

Mission:

To define, maintain and provide access to the National Spatial Reference System to meet our nation’s economic, social, and environmental needs.

Vision:

Everyone accurately knows where they are and where other things are at all times and in all places!

The site supports lat/long/height, state plane coordinates, UTM, XYZ and more. You can also select the input and output datums. The site allows you to upload multiple points for batch processing and to download the software.

There are links to information about the NGS, data and imagery, surveys and more. This is a valuable resource.

The NGS Webinar Series invites speakers to present information related to NGS programs, projects, products and services. The webinars educate constituents about NGS activities, and provide opportunities for NGS to gather feedback from its customers.

Webinars are generally held about once a month on Thursday afternoons, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. eastern time. Registration is free, and video recordings are made of all webinars for later viewing. To participate in the webinar series:
