In a new and collaborative effort between the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) and The COMET Program, a series of four, three- to four-minute videos has been developed as an introduction to geodetic datums.
The videos are titled “What are Geodetic Datums?,” “How Were Geodetic Datums Established?,” “What is the Status of Today’s Geodetic Datums?,” and “What’s Next for Geodetic Datums?”
The videos are informative and well-presented. They will be useful to all those who employ mapping products and other geo-spatial tools. NGS customers and stakeholders will gain a better understanding and appreciation for the effort involved in NGS’ upcoming release of new datums (which is planned for 2022), as well as what they can do to prepare for the new datums. The videos are the first wave of a planned series of collaborative efforts with COMET.® COMET is world leader in support of education and training for the environmental sciences.
