“GPS on Benchmarks” is a National Geodetic Survey (NGS) program designed to improve the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS). Data is collected on specific benchmarks in your area with survey grade GPS units for at least four (4) hours. This data is then submitted to the NGS and is processed with other data and incorporated into the 2022 NSRS modernization.
For more information here is a link to the program website: https://geodesy.noaa.gov/GPSonBM/
We will collect data that Saturday, July 31st 2021, then meet afterwards for dinner and drinks (location TBD).
If you are interested in participating in this event please RSVP to me by Friday, July 2nd, 2021. The SWPLSC Officers will need plenty of time to plan so participants have clear and safe direction. Events details will be available by mid-July.
The Northern Chapter of the PLSC is hosting a similar event on that same day. I hope you can join in!
