NSRS COMPONENTS

- A set of constants specifying the coordinate system used for geodetic control, i.e., for calculating coordinates of points on the Earth. Specific geodetic datums are usually given distinctive names. (e.g., North American Datum of 1983, European Datum 1950, National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929)

Characterized by:

A set of physical monuments, related by survey measurements and resulting coordinates (horizontal and/or vertical) for those monuments

- HORIZONTAL
- 2-D (Latitude and Longitude) (e.g. NAD 27, NAD 83 (1986))
- VERTICAL/GEOPOTENTIAL
- 1-D (Orthometric Height) (e.g. NGVD 29, NAVD 88, Local Tidal)
GEOMETRIC

3-D (Latitude, Longitude and Ellipsoid Height)

Fixed and Stable(?) - Coordinates seldom change

(e.g. NAD 83 (1993), NAD 83 (2007))

also

4-D (Latitude, Longitude, Ellipsoid Height, Velocities) Coordinates change with time

(e.g. ITRF00, ITRF05)

- 8 Constants
- 3 – specify the location of the origin of the coordinate system.
- 3– specify the orientation of the coordinate system.
- 2 – specify the dimensions of the reference ellipsoid

- A set of fundamental elevations to which other elevations are referred.
- Datum Types
- Tidal– Defined by observation of tidal variations over some period of time

International Earth Rotation and Reference System Service(IERS)(http://www.iers.org)

The International Terrestrial Reference System (ITRS) constitutes a set of prescriptions and conventions together with the modeling required to define origin, scale, orientation and time evolution

ITRS is realized by the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF) based upon estimated coordinates and velocities of a set of stations observed by Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI), Satellite Laser Ranging ( SLR), Global Positioning System and GLONASS (GNSS), and Doppler Orbitography and Radio- positioning Integrated by Satellite ( DORIS).

ITRF89, ITRF90, ITRF91, ITRF92, ITRF93, ITRF94, ITRF95, ITRF96, ITRF97, ITRF2000, ITRF2005, ITRF2008, ITRF2010

Unless you are doing autonomous positioning

(point positioning +/- 6-10 meters)

you’re probably NOT in WGS-84

Project tied to WGS-84 control points obtained

from the Defense Department -- Good Luck!

You’re really working in the same reference frame

as your control points -- NAD 83?

- STATE PLANE AND UNIVERSAL TRANSVERSE MERCATOR GRID COORDINATES ARE A DIRECT MATHEMATICAL CONVERSION FROM LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE TO A CARTESIAN NORTHING AND EASTING (Y & X) COORDINATE SYSTEM, AND MUST MAINTAIN THE SAME DATUM TAG [e.g. NAD 27 or NAD 83] AS THE LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE)

So What Is A Projection

NORTHING

EASTING

STATE PLANE COORDINATE ZONES

- State plane coordinates are the projection of latitudes and longitudes from the GRS80 ellipsoid

To:

- A flat mapping surface that is usually defined by state law

STATE PLANE COORDINATE SYSTEM1927

- Developed by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey from a request in 1933 from the North Carolina Department of Transportation
- Two basic map projections used:
- Lambert Conformal Conic – States or parts of states that have a more East-West orientation
- Transverse Mercator – States or parts of states that have a more North-South orientation

- Zone boundaries along International, State and county boundaries
- Zones typically 154 miles wide – this limits the maximum geodetic to grid distance distortion to 1:10,000
- All coordinate values in U.S. Survey Feet
- Conversions to/from latitude & longitude calculated using tables
- (e.g. USC&GS Special Publication. 316 Plane Coordinate Projections Tables – New Jersey)
- State Plane Coordinates by Automatic Data Processing (USC&GS 62-4)

- Geometric parameters of original SPC zones left unchanged unless requested by “the State”
- All states get new false northing and false easting defined in meters.
- All values in meters – conversions to feet defined by individual state legislation or Federal Register Notice
- 1 m = 3.2808333333. U.S. Survey Feet
- 1 m = 3.2808398950 International Feet

Utah is now a U.S. Survey Foot State

- 5. WHAT IS THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE COMMON POINTS?
- 6. HOW ACCURATE ARE THE EXISTING COORDINATES/HEIGHTS?
- 0.01 Meter
- 0.1 Meter
- 1.0 Meter

- 7. HOW ACCURATE DO I WANT THE NEW COORDINATES/HEIGHTS?

- CAPABLE OF TRANSFORMING LARGE DATASETS
- NEAR-REAL TIME APPLICATIONS

- Does not model network distortions very well.
- Assumes heights in both systems are ellipsoidal (NAD 27 did not have ellipsoidal heights).
