    NOAA Webinar: State Plane 2022 - The Shape of Things to Come

    June 11, 2020  |  2-3 pm, Eastern Daylight Time

    Dr. Michael Dennis, National Geodetic Survey

    The State Plane Coordinate System (SPCS) of tomorrow is taking shape. March 31, 2020 was the deadline for submitting requests and proposals for SPCS2022 zones. Requests are for designs by NGS, and proposals are for designs by state stakeholders. Inquiries were also received for “special use” zones with coverage areas in more than one state.

    This presentation shows how stakeholder input affects the number, distribution, and performance of SPCS2022 zones. Although there will be more zones than earlier versions of SPCS, that will vary greatly by state, with some having only one zone and others having many zones (including low-distortion projections). This variability shows how SPCS2022 will help meet the diverse needs of the geospatial communities in different states.

    Intermediate Technical Content Rating: Some knowledge of this topic is helpful.
