May 2014 Webinar: Localization/Site Calibration – What is it? Why and How to do it?

Presented by: Charles D. Ghilani, Ph.D.

Date: May 21, 2014

Time: Noon

CE Credits: 1 PDH

Attendance limited to the first 95 registrants.

Description: The webinar will cover the various reference frames that surveyors may run into in practice today such as WGS84, NAD83 (2007), and NAD83 (2011). It will discuss the best practices in performing a localization/site calibration to place your GNSS receiver in the proper reference frame, discuss software available from the NGS to transfer coordinates from various historical reference frames into NAD83 (2011), and discuss the mathematics and implications that can occur when best practices are not followed.
