National Geodetic Survey HSRP Update Honolulu, HI May 04, 2011 Juliana Blackwell Director National Geodetic Survey
Performance Measures NGS performance measures support many of HSRPs most wanted improvements • Disseminate NOAA’s Hydrographic Services Data and Products to Achieve Greatest Public Benefit • GPRA: Percentage of U.S. counties enabled with accurate positioning capacity • Current: 81.66% fully or substantially enabled • End of FY11: 83% to be enabled • Modernize Heights and Implement Real-time Water Levels…. • New GPRA 2013: Percent of U.S. enabled to benefit from a new national vertical reference system (GRAV-D) • Current: 11.03% of US flown • End of FY11: 13% to be flown primarily in AK • Aggressively Map the Nation’s Shorelines • Update the U.S. shoreline • Current: 2928 miles, 2%, completed • End of FY11: 3.5%, completed • Update the shoreline in priority ports • Q4 deadline of 20 ports (11%) updated • Analyze priority ports for changes • Q4 deadline, of 29 ports (16%) analyzed
Opus Projects Beta Version initiated Completed Q1 International absolute gravimeters compared at NOAA’s TMGO and reported to IAG Completed Q2 The IERS site survey program begun at NGS with at least one site survey Q4 deadline, proposal has been approved Socio-economic benefit study of NGS remote sensing products and services initiated Q4 deadline, contractors being evaluated Milestones
Joint Milestones • (NGS Lead w/ COOPS &OCS) Expansion of National VDatum New VDatum Models for Texas, and Maine to Massachusetts • Texas Model Released. Deadline Q3 for Maine to Massachusetts • (NGS Lead w/ CO-OPS) New guidelines for geospatial infrastructure for monitoring coastal and environmental change at sentinel sites and other coastal reserves developed for public review. Q4 • (NGS Lead w/ CO-OPS) Establish 1-3 co-located CORS at tide and water level stations. Q4
Significant Activities • NOAA GPS Data-Sharing Solution Hits 3,000 Mark and Counting • OPUS-Data Base (OPUS-DB recently hit the milestone of 3,000 marks submitted for database inclusion • Horizontal Time Dependent Positioning (HTDP) • New version of HTDP released • Collected emergency response imagery • Hurricane Earl • Red River 9/3/10 Hurricane Earl Imagery
Significant Activities • Mobile Bay Project • CO-OPS, OCS and NGS are working in Mobile Bay and the surrounding area and 2 NERRS • NGS Participates in Cooperative Effort with USGS and Harris-Galveston Subsidence District • Collecting data at a new Continuously Operating Reference Station (CORS) in Houston, TX for consideration as a National CORS
Significant Activities • NGS Acquires New Remote Sensing Capability • RIEGL USA CP680i-D Airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) and LiDAR-Acquisition System • NGS Perform Airport Obstruction Survey at Miami International Airport • Allows NGS to transition from primarily collecting survey data to providing Quality Assurance (QA) services of contracted survey data submitted directly to the FAA
Significant Activities • NGS Acquires New Absolute Gravity Meter • Expected to save one to two days per measurement in support of airborne surveys • Reduce survey cost • GRAV-D Airborne Survey • Focus on Alaska CHECK WITH MONICA Black boxes indicate flown area and Green boxes are too be flown in 2011
Upcoming Activities (FY11/12) • Install one foundation CORS site to improve the ITRF • Complete the computation of GPS positions for IGLD 2015 update • Begin collection of gravity data using superconducting gravity meter to support international efforts (GGP)
Upcoming Activities (FY11/12) • Develop operational GPS-interference detection service in cooperation with DHS • Complete one IERS site survey • Complete gravity data collection in most of Alaska with the exception of the Aleutians • Install 2 CORS co-located with tide stations
