If you use the NGS state plane coordinate system then you will not want to miss this important webinar being presented by Dr. Michael Dennis on Thursday October 10, 2019 from 2 to3 PM EDT.
The National Spatial Reference System (NSRS) will change in 2022, including the State Plane Coordinate System (SPCS), and you can be a part of that change.This presentation provides guidance on making requests to NGS for design of SPCS2022 zones in a state, how a state can propose and submit its own designs, and the special case of zones in more than one state.
Webinar topics include:
- Who can submit requests and proposals
- How to complete the forms
- When it all must be done
- Requirements for zone designs (the “rules”)
The reasons for the rules will also be discussed, to show how they promote good design practice and provide consistency for a nationwide system intended for the future—but one that is also more complex than its predecessors.
Technical Content: Intermediate (Some prior knowledge of the topic is helpful).
