NOAA’s National Geodetic Survey (NGS) Programs


NGS will be hosting three events, each one providing a venue for NGS to share information about its products and services as well as hear from its customers across the public and private sectors.

  • NGS Geospatial Summit
    NGS will provide updates regarding the planned replacement of its two primary geodetic datums: the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83) and the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88). The summit will be an opportunity for federal and state agencies, as well other constituents, to share their comments, questions and concerns regarding the new geometric and geopotential datums, which are planned to be published in 2022.

  • Federal Geodetic Control Subcommittee’s Quarterly Meeting
    A venue for federal agencies to coordinate and plan the execution of geodetic surveys, the development of related standards and specifications, and the exchange of other technical information. This open meeting is an opportunity to hear how federal agencies are exercising their responsibilities to address today’s surveying and mapping issues.

  • Annual National Height Modernization Program Partner Meeting
    State and university partners will explain the best practices they develop and challenges they encounter when determining accurate heights in their local regions or communities. The meeting is also an opportunity for stakeholders to express their requirements as NGS continues to develop geodetic models and tools in preparation for the replacement of NAD 83 and NAVD 88. NOAA’s National Geodetic Survey (NGS) is hosting three events, and each one provides a venue for NGS to share information about its products and services as well as hear from its customers across the public and private sectors.
