The NGS 2019 Geospatial Summit will be held in Silver Spring, MD May 6 – 7, 2019. The ongoing modernization of the National Spatial Reference System will be the main focus of the event.
The NGS plans to replace the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83) and the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88) in 2022 as part of modernizing the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS). This is your opportunity to learn first hand what is being planned for 2022 and how this will impact your geodetic operations.
By attending the NGS 2019 Geospatial Summit you will:
- learn about NGS’ progress in modernizing the NSRS;
- hear how NGS has been engaging NSRS users across sectors;
- ask questions of NGS experts; and
- share your feedback about the planned changes
The 2019 Geospatial Summit agenda will include expected impacts of the planned replacement of the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83) and the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88).
The NGS is exploring new ways to present this type of information, and we would like your feedback. Suggestions are welcome anytime if you would like to contribute to future Geospatial Summits or similar events.
To allow the NGS to plan for the meeting, all attendees (including NGS employees) must register by April 5th, 2019. There is no cost for registration or attendance. However, attendees must fund their own travel expenses.
This is important. For those who cannot attend in person, remote attendance will be supported. If you are interested in participating remotely you should use the same registration process as in-person attendees.
You can register here.
