Join us for a presentation from Randy Tompkins, DRMP, on 2022 NGS DATUM Implementation. DRMP just got certified as a FL PE continuing education provider. Attend this luncheon for a free 1 hour PDH for all licensed PEs.

Randy Tompkins, PSM, PLS
July's guest speaker is a Geomatics Project Manager with DRMP, Inc. in their Jacksonville, FL office, and has managed a wide variety of surveying and mapping projects for both private and public sector clients.

Randy will be presenting on the National Geodetic Survey's Plan to replace NAD 83 and NAVD 88 with NATRF2022. While the NAD 83 and NAVD 88 are still the official horizontal and vertical datums of the National Spatial Reference System (NSRS), shortcomings have been identified that include unchecked physical movement and simple removal, and lack of resources to maintain them. These issues are best addressed by defining new datums. The new reference frames will rely primarily on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) such as GPS as well as updated and time-tracked geoid models.
