State Plane Coordinate System of 2022 – NGS Webinar
NGS will establish the State Plane Coordinate System of 2022 (SPCS2022) as part of modernizing the National Spatial Reference System. Michael Dennis will host a webinar on this topic January 10, 2019 from 2 to 3 PM EST to provide important insights and procedures. It is not clear whether this will happen with the current government shut down in effect.
NGS invited written comments on the draft SPCS2022 policy and procedures. In this webinar, we will share the feedback it received on SPCS2022 and the final SPCS2022 Policy and Procedures. The technical content is rated intermediate with some prior knowledge of the topic being helpful.
In attempting to provide additional background information I was met with the following message on the NOAA websites:
The website you are trying to access is not available at this time due to a lapse in appropriation.
NOAA.gov and specific NOAA websites necessary to protect lives and property are operational and will be maintained during this partial closure of the U.S. Government.
See weather.gov for forecasts and critical weather information.
How sad is this? This shutdown is affecting a lot more people and businesses than you think, including our geomatics industry. Something has to be done about the mess that we call our government here in the U.S.
I beleive this is the first time that I have made anything resembling a political statement on this blog, but if these politicians take what is a very positive business climate and create fear of a downturn then it will become self-fulfilling. I guess we get what we deserve when it comes to the people running this country.
I am still optimistic, but it is not getting easier to remain that way.
