The State Plane Coordinate System: History, Policy, Future Directions - Webinar

March 8, 2018, 1pm Central Time/2 pm, Eastern Time

Michael Dennis, NGS

Originally created by NGS in the 1930s, the State Plane Coordinate System (SPCS) is used extensively throughout the U.S. for surveying, engineering, and mapping. SPCS usage has varied and grown considerably since its creation, due mainly to widespread adoption of computerized drafting, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). This webinar is intended to provide a better understanding of changes that will occur for SPCS2022. Additional information on the evolution of SPCS is available in NOAA Special Publication NOS NGS 13, “The State Plane Coordinate System: History, Policy, and Future Directions.” NGS is also currently seeking input on SPCS2022 policy from state and U.S. territory stakeholders. The goal is for SPCS2022 to be a technically sound and practical part of the future spatial data infrastructure, and serve the needs of NGS customers.
