As part of modernizing the National Spatial Reference System, a NGS webinar will explain a transformation tool that provides a mapping-grade transformation between the current and new datums. Users are encouraged to submit GPS data on existing bench marks to improve the quality of the transformation in their local areas. These webinars have been extremely valuable educational opportunities. By registering you will get the link to the on-demand recording.

NGS has released a new prioritized list of bench marks across the United States and its Territories to direct local users to the marks in their area where new GPS observations would have the biggest impact on the quality of the tool. A new GPSonBM web map is also available that enables users to explore, sort, and download coordinates on the list.
Technical Content: Intermediate (Some prior knowledge of the topic is helpful).
