    Geodesy for the Modern Age

    Presentation Outline:

    Have you ever been clicking away in your favorite mapping software, added another dataset, and realized it was misaligned?  Maybe you thought to yourself… what is a datum anyway? Maybe you got distracted that day and ended up on Wikipedia, reading about geodesy before you knew it. Or maybe you just fiddled with the settings in your software until everything looked good. In his talk, Jeff will attempt to tell you everything you never knew about geodesy, but didn’t know who to ask. Well, not everything, but some things at least! We will go over: the role of NGS, how horizontal & vertical datums have traditionally been created, how they are created nowadays, details of our Nation’s geodetic infrastructure the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS), how we at NGS plan to modernize the NSRS for the future, and a little bit on how to prepare for that.

    About The Speaker:

    Jeff Jalbrzikowski (pronounced jobs-uh-kah-ski) is the Appalachian Regional Advisor for NOAA’s National Geodetic Survey (NGS).  He has a varied background with field and office experience in boundary, geodetic, and hydrographic surveying, and has been involved in GIS projects ranging from parcel digitization to LiDAR data processing.  Jeff is a licensed Professional Surveyor in multiple states, a certified GIS Professional, a Certified Floodplain Surveyor, and earned his Bachelor’s degree in Surveying and Mapping from the University of Akron, Ohio.  His role as Regional Advisor is to assist the public in utilizing the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS), and any other products and services that NGS provides.

    Zoom info will be available upon registration.
